5 Years Ago DEF LEPPARD Announce HYSTERIA On The High Seas Cruise
Def Leppard announced the Hysteria On The High Seas cruise for January 2016 on this day in 2015.
The Hysteria On The High Seas Cruise took place between 21st to 25th January 2016.
The band and attending fans were to set sail on the cruise ship MSC Divina and travel to Freeport on Grand Bahama Island.
The cruise would be hosted by DJ Eddie Trunk and include various concerts and events which would be announced closer to the time.
The actual cruise did not go as well as planned but did include two Def Leppard concert events. Joe's illness and the death of Last In Line bassist Jimmy Bain make it seem highly unlikely the band will attempt to do another cruise anytime soon despite having announced it as the 'inaugural' event.
Read the recent anniversary posts linked below.
Joe Elliott first mentioned the cruise during an interview onin February 2015.
The band first announced a cruise with a different title (Aquamania!...) on 4th March before removing all mention of it after a couple of hours. The ship was to have been named the HMS Rock Of Ages.
