Classic Rock Morning Show - Joe Elliott Interview Quotes

Current 2017 Tour

"We're actually on a break at the moment. So it gets more exciting the closer you get to starting up again. We finished up in Charlotte, North Carolina about 12 days ago and we fire up again on Wednesday. So yeah it's nice to kind of take stock and sit back and watch, you know, soak up what you've done, but knowing full well there's another 17 shows coming up. And we're still out there doing it. That's the exciting thing is after all this time there's still just an enormous amount of people coming to see the band play live. We must have done something right at one stage."

Hysteria 30th Anniversary/2018 Tour

"Not this particular year no. But it's something that we may - we may look at doing. We did it four years ago. We did a run in Vegas of a month where we played the entire album. We did a 45 minute set of different stuff and then we went off for 20 minutes and came back on and played hysteria in sequence. It's out on DVD. It's not like people can't get to see it even though it's not live."

"But you know it is a consideration for if we tour next year. Even though the album was born in 1987, I don't think it really kind of came to life until 1988."
