Viva! Hysteria is a double live album by British rock band Def Leppard released on 22 October 2013.[3] The album was recorded on 29 and 30 March 2013 during the band's residency of the same title at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino (Las Vegas).

The first disc contains Def Leppard's 1987 album Hysteria, played in its entirety, followed by an encore of two hits from Pyromania, "Rock of Ages" and "Photograph." The second disc has a selection of deeper cuts, many of which the band had not played in several years. The band performed these under the name "Ded Flatbird" as an opening to the show, before playing Hysteria. Tracks 1-8 are the opening set from 29 March (However excluding the 5th track played that night, "When Love & Hate Collide").[4] Tracks 9-15 are the opening set from the following night, 30 March. This notably ends with the band playing all of Side 1 of the band's 1981 album High 'n' Dry.
