Def Leppard will perform 11 shows at The Joint between March 22 and April 13. They’ll play the Hysteria album in full, in addition to a greatest hits segment.
The new single is the latest song re-recorded by the band, who explained their reasoning in recent interviews.
“It was, well, let’s just say a sensible business decision on our part,” Leppard vocalist Joe Elliott told MTV. “How can I put this politely? We were having a major disagreement with our ex-record label about the digital rights for our back catalog. We couldn’t come to a mutual understanding that seemed fair for both sides.
“So we finally just decided to re-record all our hits. We started with “Sugar” and “Rock of Ages,” and I think we did a pretty good job. It’s hard work trying to recreate something you did 30 years ago.”
