DEF LEPPARD to release deluxe editions of 'Pyromania' and 'Adrenalize' 8th June

Def Leppard, Britain’s greatest arena rock band, are set to release deluxe editions of the classic albums ‘Pyromania’ and ‘Adrenalize’ on the 8th June 2009. The band also headline Dublin’s O2 Arena on Friday the 12th June and they headline the UK’s Download festival on Sunday 14th June 2009.

Having sold over 65 million albums worldwide since their debut release in 1980 and proved themselves one of rock music’s hardest working and consistently powerful live bands (playing to over 50 million fans in the last 15 years alone), these timely deluxe expanded editions are a must for any discerning music fan. Def Leppard remain one of only five rock groups who can claim two separate original 10 million plus selling albums in the US (‘Pyromania’ being one of them). The others are The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and Van Halen.

Both Deluxe Editions will feature deluxe digipak gatefold packaging with expanded booklets containing rare and previously unseen photographs, comprehensive sleeve-notes telling the story behind each album and include images of rare single covers and memorabilia from the period. Liner notes come from Rolling Stone’s David Fricke.

‘Pyromania’, Def Leppard’s third album originally released in 1983, was the album that took the band to the global stage. Produced by Robert “Mutt” Lange, the album sold over 10 million copies in the USA alone and spawned the huge singles ‘Photograph’, ‘Rock Of Ages’ and ‘Foolin’’. The Deluxe Expanded Edition features a remastered version of the original album and a bonus disc of a previously unreleased 15 track show from the LA
Forum in 1983.

‘Adrenalize’, Def Leppard’s fifth studio album from 1992, followed the enormous ‘Hysteria’ (released in 1987) and cemented the band as the dominant Arena rock band. The album was recorded following the tragic death of guitarist Steve Clark – with Phil Collen recording all guitar parts – and dedicated to his memory. The album featured huge singles such as ‘Let’s Get Rocked’ and ‘Make Love Like A Man’ and debuted at No 1 in both the UK and USA (going on to sell over 7 million copies worldwide). The album was produced by Def Leppard and Mike Shipley with Robert “Mutt” Lange as executive producer. The Deluxe Expanded Edition features a remastered version of the original album with a bonus disc of rare, live, acoustic and demo versions.

Def Leppard set the world alight with ‘Pyromania’. And then gave rock a massive shot in the arm with ‘Adrenalize’.

Together, these are a masterclass in melodic hard rock. Now get both with bonus tracks in expanded formats.

Two amazing albums. From one great band.

Friday 12th June 2009 O2 Arena, Dublin, Eire – Headline Home // The O2 Dublin
