Def Leppard

Sheffield, UK (January 31, 2018) – At 12:01am local time around the world on January 19, legendary British rock icons Def Leppard debuted their full recording catalogue worldwide via streaming and download platforms. As they did with the original release of their records, Def Leppard dominated the worldwide charts again. US and UK chart stats saw their albums charting in the iTunes Top 10 in more than 30 countries, including Hysteria at #3 in the US, and #5 in the UK. Def Leppard had the #1, #2 and #3 records on the US catalogue albums chart. This marks the second appearance at #1 for Hysteria, which also topped the catalogue chart in 2017 on the release of the Deluxe Edition. It’s the highest chart position ever for Pyromania, which previously entered the charts at #24 in 1992. Itís also the highest result for Vault since that album topped the catalogue chart in August of 2002.

One of the last multi-platinum-selling acts to be made available on streaming and download platforms, music fans from all corners of the globe are enjoying tracks and albums from Def Leppard who have sold more than 100 million albums worldwide to become one of rock’s most enduring and influential bands.
