Libel - Vivian Campbell Interview Quotes

Playing Hysteria Live In 2018

"Once we get to Australia, New Zealand, Japan and the UK after that we'll be performing as you know the Hysteria show in it's entirety. So that's always exciting cause it is really a landmark record and as a guy who bought it… (twice… on cassette and CD)."

"You know I wasn't in the band at the time but I was a huge huge fan so it's a great pleasure actually to be able to play it live. And we can do a really really good job representing it too because we're a very strong vocal band and work really hard on that aspect of the live performance so we can actually really represent it well and we don't have to rely on back up kits or things like that."
