Def Leppard 1988. Def Leppard 1988 Stage

Def Leppard singer Joe Elliott just finished his live Q and A session in London and gave some interesting tour news at the end.

Joe "almost" confirmed the recent hints by himself and Phil about Hysteria album shows that will likely happen in 2018.

In Joe's words the band "may do something very spectacular" in the UK and that the 'Hysteria' album will feature in full.

This would be the first time this has been done outside the USA, France and Spain where they played the full album between March-June 2013).

The most recent tour news suggests another US summer tour with Journey but Vivian did say the band had other things planned including UK/European and Far East shows. Joe's news suggests a limited run of In The Round Hysteria shows on both sides of the Atlantic around any tour with Journey (or not...).

The last mention of possible In The Round shows was by Phil in April when he said the band will start from scratch again with their staging in 2018 and had been talking about playing In The Round again "at some point".

Watch the live videos from tonight's event below which feature the tour mention at the end.

The last, and only, UK shows to feature the In The Round setup were in June/July 1992 on the Adrenalize tour. View a photo below from one of the Sheffield Arena shows.

3rd August 2017 - Joe Elliott Live Q And A Quotes

In The Round Staging/2018 UK Hysteria Shows

"There's probably gonna be shows in the UK and they may feature an iconic album in total. Or they might not. We'll have to wait and see."

"I''m old school. I like to keep secrets. I hate Twitter. I don't do Facebook. I'm old school. I give news to the website and let him deal with it. But we'll wait and see - but you know I'm not gonna lead anybody up any garden paths. Other than maybe, maybe we will do something very spectacular in the UK next year."

The 'Hysteria 30th Anniversary Edition' is released today around the world.
