Def Leppard Announce Las Vegas Residency

Def Leppard have confirmed that they will kick off a residency at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Las Vegas on March 22. The glam-metal legends will perform their hits every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday at the intimate venue.

As part of the residency the band plans to revive their signature release, 1987's Hysteria, in its entirety. The residency lasts for nine shows over three weeks with tickets going on sale November 16.

"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," singer Joe Elliott said in a band statement.

Tickets start at $49.50 with various VIP packages available.
