The films and their soundtracks will also be released separately with 'Hysteria Live ' also listed on its own as a Limited Edition Clear vinyl album release on the same date and with cover art featuring the 2018 UK Hysteria tour poster against a red background.
The total time of the films is 263 minutes and they are released by Eagle Rock Entertainment who also put out the 2017 'And There Will be A Next Time' film.
The Las Vegas film is set to feature - "exclusive behind the scenes bonus features".

97/6 The Eagle/Double T - Joe Elliott Interview Quotes
Def Leppard 2020 Plans/2020 Vision Series
"We have all sorts of stuff going on you know. Def Leppard, when we're not visible we're like a room with the curtains drawn. There's a lot of activity going off behind those curtains but you just can't see us you know."
"So you know we're writing new music. We're about to drop some classic old stuff that's not been seen before. We're putting a lot of video together for this. We've got a run of video releases coming out this year. that we're titling 2020 Vision for obvious reasons."
"And it's like, you know, it's our history. We're basically. We've got stuff that's relatively new like the Vegas Residency that we did towards the end of last year. And the Hysteria tour that we did around the UK that's coming out as a double DVD/Blu-ray disc soon as well."
"So there's a lot of stuff that we're working on old and new. So it's constant. We're just, we're not seven days a week, you know, nailed down in a room doing it because everybody lives all over the world. But we've got an energy where it works."
"You know we can just do little bits at a time and we still get a lot of stuff done in short bursts. But the main focus right now is is these shows 'cause they're very very important."
