In commemoration of Def Leppard's 1987 six-week chart-topper Hysteria on August 4th the band is re-issuing the album in several deluxe 30th anniversary configurations.

Frontman Joe Elliott said in the announcement: "It’s hard to believe that it’s been 30 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."

Phil Collen told Pulse of Radio that Def Leppard took great pride in its massive pop crossover success with Hysteria:

Hysteria was. . . We had seven singles off that album, and where we really got a lot of fans is when it went into the Top 40 realm. So yeah, the pop thing, we're not embarrassed about that or ashamed. That's what we do. We're the hybrid. We always try to be."

Hysteria has sold an astounding 35 million copies to date.
