There is little doubt among the rock community that the legendary Def Leppard earn high ranks as one of the most powerful and iconic bands in rock history, as evidenced by their induction to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2019. The most commercially successful New Wave of British Heavy Metal band, Def Leppard ignited the 1980s reign of metal. Their anthemic hooks, melodic but powerful guitars, larger-than-life drum sounds, and sexy swagger created the ultimate stadium experience. The band was at the top of the charts repeatedly throughout the '80s, records like 1983's Pyromania and 1987's Hysteria bringing them to sold-out arenas around the world.
Hysteria -Def Leppard Tribute, was formed in 2013. Hysteria consists of: Shawn Worra as Joe Elliot, Doug Cisler as Phil Collen, Dan Kehoe as Steve Clark, Marco Lago-Ferrari as Rick Savage and Vance Nurkala as Rick Allen. These five seasoned musicians bring an over the top, high energy live show combined with virtuosic musicianship and the striking visual presence of an authentic ‘80s era Def Leppard concert.
Hysteria’s live 90-minute production of Def Leppard’s greatest hits preserves the image, sound, and stage persona of 80’s era Def Leppard. Audiences are amazed at the accuracy of Hysteria’s live retrospective journey through such Def Leppard songs as Rock of Ages - Photograph - Pour Some Sugar on Me - Armageddon It - Bringin’ on the Heartbreak - Foolin’ - Hysteria - Love Bites - Rocket - Let’s Get Rocked - Too Late for Love - Animal and many more. They have performed in front of thousands of people at casinos, fairs, festivals and private events.
