Jacaranda FM - Joe Elliott Interview Quote

VIVA Hysteria!

"Superb, absolutely superb because I'll tell you for why. When you've basically toured and done an album and toured and done an album and toured, toured, toured. You get an opportunity to go somewhere as crazy as Las Vegas and actually stay in the same bed for like 21 nights and do three shows a week and shoot a documentary and shoot a DVD and write some songs and disappear into the madness of Vegas and be anonymous on your days off. But put on the entire Hysteria album and then make it into this huge big production it was just such a blast."

"It's really rock and roll and it's the place to be. And to actually go there and have the crowd come and visit us and us set up in the one building and be there for you know the best part of a month. It was just a magnificent thing to do. It was really, really cool."
