    Hysteria is coming to Sin City.

    Def Leppard have announced plans for an exclusive nine show residency at The Joint inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas. The band's set will feature a greatest hits segment in addition to their iconic album Hysteria being played in full. Entitled VIVA Hysteria!, the spring 2013 residency will kick off on Friday, March 22 and run through Wednesday, April 10 (see dates below). Show time is 8PM.

    Vegas residencies are all the rage in 2012 and 2013, with Mötley Crüe and Guns N' Roses having done 'em. Now, Lepp is on board.

    Produced exclusively by AEG Live, VIVA Hysteria! will feature an elaborate set design created only for Def Leppard's Las Vegas residency and will include an encore performance highlighting other classic material from throughout the band's career. Known for legendary big-scale arena shows, Def Leppard will bring their over-the-top production to The Joint offering an up-close-and-personal experience like never before. With the furthest seat only 155 feet from the intimate venue's stage, VIVA Hysteria! is unlike any show the band has ever done or will ever do again.

    "We've never done anything like this before in our entire career so the opportunity to do something completely different like this, in such an iconic setting, is very exciting and something we just couldn't say no to! It should make for a great, over-the-top rock show! Bring it on!" exclaimed Joe Elliott, lead vocalist of Def Leppard.

    "We couldn't be more amped to announce Def Leppard's VIVA Hysteria! as the latest member of unforgettable residencies at The Joint," said Paul Davis, vice president of entertainment at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas. "Featuring the entire Hysteria album, fans can expect an action-packed, nostalgic euphoria of music, rock 'n' roll and over-the-top amusement."
