Sheffield’s most famous export since stainless steel, Def Leppard, have unveiled the trailer to an upcoming documentary about their seminal album ‘Hysteria’.

As the name suggests, ‘Step Inside: Hysteria At 30’ celebrates the 30th anniversary of the 25-million selling rock blockbuster and features interviews with Phil Collen, Rick Allen, Rick Savage and, of course, Planet Rock’s very own Joe Elliot.

Have a look at trailer here:


The mini-documentary supports the bumper reissue of ‘Hysteria’ across a smorgasbord of formats on Friday 4th August.

The packages range from a single disc of the remastered album through to a Super Deluxe Edition costing £105 featuring 5 CDs, 2 DVDs, a tour poster and four booklets; Story Of, a Ross Halfin photo book, Discography and Hysteria Tour Program.

In addition, there’s a 3-CD deluxe version, a limited edition coloured double vinyl and a standard edition double black vinyl.

Joe Elliott says: "It's hard to believe that it’s been thirty years since the release of 'Hysteria'. In some respects, it really does seem like only yesterday.

“So, to mark this milestone, we wanted to do something very special for our fans and give them the definitive version of the album, one that incorporates all of the memories and milestones that we caught on tape and some of the madness that we got up to on the road. We hope it means as much to you as it does to us."

Guitarist Phil Collen adds: "I look back at the whole 'Hysteria' experience with excitement along with fond and tragic memories. It was our commercial zenith, thanks to Mutt Lange's insistence that we create an artistic hybrid between hard rock and pop Top 40 music using every genre available as an inspiration. It was a rock album that would garner seven hit singles. Mission accomplished."
