Def Leppard's fourth album Hysteria, released in August 1987, topped the UK and U.S. album charts. It has been certified 12 x Platinum in the U.S. and has gone on to sell over 25 million copies worldwide.

The album spawned seven hit singles, including the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 number one "Love Bites", alongside "Pour Some Sugar on Me", "Hysteria", "Armageddon It", "Animal", "Rocket", and "Women".

The album's goal, set out by producer Robert John “Mutt” Lange, was to be a hard rock version of Michael Jackson's Thriller, in that every track was a potential hit single. Songs were therefore written with this concept in mind.

This 30th anniversary Super Deluxe Edition has been prepared in conjunction with singer Joe Elliott who has acted as executive producer on the set, the mastering has been done by the band’s long-serving sound engineer Ronan McHugh.

The Super Deluxe Edition comes with 5CDs consisting of the original album, various b-sides, remix versions and the first ever appearance of the ‘In the Round’ concert film audio, plus the BBC radio documentary on the album also appears for the first time.

2 DVDs are also included, containing the Classic Albums documentary, the BBC Rock of Ages documentary as well as the BBC Top Of The Pops appearances and the promo videos from the time.

Inside the box are 4 books, a history of the album written by Mojo and classic Rock writer Paul Elliott (no relation), a complete discography of all the releases from around the world, a photo book of rare and unseen photos by noted photographer Ross Halfin and a facsimile of the concert programme from the time.
