DEF LEPPARD Releases 'Acoustic Medley' Via iTunes; Audio Stream Available

DEF LEPPARD has released a special medley of acoustic versions of songs that were performed during the band's 2012 live shows. The seven-and-a-half-minute medley, which is available exclusively on iTunes starting today, includes snippets of the following tracks:

* "Where Does Love Go When It Dies"
* "Now"
* "When Love and Hate Collide"
* "Have You Ever Needed Someone So Bad"
* "Two Steps Behind"

"We decided to change the acoustic section of the set for the Rock Of Ages tour, and what we ended up with just grew into a really magical experience every night," DEF LEPPARD singer Joe Elliott told AOL's Noisecreep. "We all enjoyed doing it so much and it was so well received by our audience, we decided to do a studio recording of it. I think it complements our main body of work very well."

You can now stream the medley below (courtesy of AOL's Noisecreep).

DEF LEPPARD will play its 1987 album "Hysteria" in its entirety as part of the Las Vegas residency, which is scheduled to kick off at the end of March.

Viva Hysteria! follows Hard Rock residencies from MÖTLEY CRÜE and GUNS N' ROSES.

Tickets are on sale now and start at $49.50, with floor seats going for $125.
