Def Leppard To Bring 'Day Of Hysteria' To AXS TV

AXS TV will air Viva! Hysteria, the 2013 concert film from Def Leppard. The footage was shot during Lep's Vegas residency earlier this year, and will air during AXS' 12-hour music special on December 29.

For the show, DL played their smash hit album Hysteria in full. Speaking with Rolling Stone this fall, guitarist Phil Collen described the concert as "the best live performance we've ever captured, and better than most other bands."

"We sounded 20 years younger [with] an aggression that for some reason we haven't had on previous live recordings. It had a punk ethos."

"A Day of Hysteria" will begin at 8 p.m. EST on December 29. During the 12 hours of concert broadcasts Leppard bandmembers will provide "exclusive commentary" for other concerts aired, including those by KISS, Bon Jovi, Sammy Hagar and more.
