Def Leppard’s Hysteria turns thirty this August, and fans of the 25 million-selling juggernaut will have a lot of material to celebrate with, as the band prepare a Super Deluxe Edition that scoops up everything from BBC radio docos to long-forgotten b-sides.

The Super Deluxe Edition was prepped with the help of singer Joe Elliott, with mastering handled by the band’s long-time sound engineer Ronan McHugh. It features five CDs, which include the remastered version of the album, remixes, b-sides, the ‘In The Round’ concert, a radio doco, and more, as well as two DVDs featuring all video clips, the Classic Albums documentary, the BBC Rock of Ages documentary, and their various Top Of The Pops appearances.

The box-set also comes with four books: an indepth history of the record, penned by MOJO scribe Paul Elliott; an exhaustive discography, featuring rare releases from around the world; a photo book; and a recreation of the concert programme for the Hysteria tour.

The boxset will be out August 4, and can be preordered here. Tracklisting below.
