Viva! Hysteria is a double live album by the English 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. Both Ded Flatbird sets open with the band playing a short excerpt of The Who's Won't Get Fooled Again.

DVD / Blu-Ray[edit]

The DVD and Blu-ray releases, which also had a short stint in selected theaters around the world,[5] contain the same track listing as the CD version, on one disc. The main difference is that the tracks on CD Disc One comprise the main feature, and the songs on CD Disc Two are bonus features along with the Acoustic Medley.
