Def Leppard have added an extra London show to their 2018 UK tour. The group will now finish the Hysteria tour at London's SSE Wembley Arena on Tue 18 Dec. Tickets for the extra date are on sale now.
The group, formed in Sheffield back in 1977, recently revealed that their extensive back catalogue is going to be made available on streaming services for the first time.
Frontman Joe Elliot said: 'It's with a mixture of relief and euphoria that we now see our entire catalogue finally getting a digital release.
'Having embraced every other format with open arms, especially and more recently the re-emergence of vinyl, we're now going to be available to everyone everywhere and honestly, it's as exciting as the original releases were.'
The upcoming tour will see the group play the seminal Hysteria album in full. The group kick off the run of UK shows at Belfast's SSE Arena on Sun 2 Dec, performing throughout the country throughout December, including their first ever show at London's O2 Arena and a hometown show at Sheffield's FLYDSA Arena on Fri 14 Dec.
