Def Leppard singer Joe Elliott has said the band are planning a concert to celebrate the anniversary of the Hysteria album while talking to the press in Peru.

Joe was speaking after a 25th April press conference with the Rock n Roll All-Stars in Lima, Peru ahead of tonight's show. Joe was interviewed by Terra along with Matt Sorum and Duff McKagan. They also appeared live on radio last night with Glenn Hughes (pic below) performing 'All The Young Dudes' acoustically.

After being asked about a possible celebration of Pyromania's 30th anniversary in 2013 Joe replied that they are planning to celebrate Hysteria's 25th anniversary this year with a special concert. The details were not specific and the following quote is translated from Spanish.

Obviously if anything is planned for this year more details will be revealed. The second part of the quote suggests the band are involved in the soundtrack to the Rock Of Ages movie but he probably told them about the soundtrack album and the premiere. The article is linked below along with photos/video from the main press conference.


Lima, Peru Interview - Joe Elliott Interview Quote (Translated)

Question about whether they are preparing a special celebration for the 30 years of release of "Pyromania".

"For Pyromania we did a reprint 3 years ago and we did not make any anniversary tour. Rather, what we do have planned is to make a special concert to celebrate the release of "Hysteria" (fourth album released in 1987)."

"For now, the group is writing some songs and putting the finishing touches to the soundtrack of the musical 'Rock of Ages' to be released in early June."
