Recorded live at the Spotify studio, the musicians preserve the provocative power of “Personal Jesus”, while imbuing their own signature style and spirit. A recording of the cover has preceded recent live shows. Meanwhile, they amplify the energy of “Hysteria” with this hyper-charged rendition. A live staple, it most notably serves as the title track of their 1987 best-selling album of the same name, which garnered a Diamond certification from the RIAA and housed seven smash singles. The original also stands out as a fan favourite on Spotify!

Right now, the group is in the midst of one of the year’s biggest U.S. tours—their co-headliner with Journey.

Def Leppard will then take the tour global with dates in Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland & the U.K.
