Def Leppard concert chronology

The Hysteria World Tour was a concert tour by English hard rock band Def Leppard for their fourth album "Hysteria". This was the first tour with drummer Rick Allen since his car accident on 31 December 1984 when he lost his left arm. Allen returned to the band for recording sessions and the tour using a custom designed electronic drum set. It was also the last tour to feature guitarist Steve Clark before his death on 8 January 1991 from alcoholism and a combination of prescription drugs and painkillers. Prior to the start of the European leg in March 1988, the band rented the Scandinavium arena in Gothenburg, Sweden for a week of full production rehearsals.

Many of the dates on the tour were performed "in the round", with the stage and light-rigging set up in the middle of arenas, giving the audience a 360 degree view of the band's performance.
