The first portion of Step Inside: Hysteria at 30, is now online. Offering roughly nine minutes of archival footage and new interviews with the group, the clip — which you can check out above — offers a peek behind the scenes of a retrospective celebration that includes a freshly remastered and expanded version of the album.
The 30th anniversary edition of Hysteria — due in stores Aug. 4 — will be available in an array of different editions, ranging from a straight remaster to a deluxe seven-disc box that tacks on a long list of bonus material.
“It’s hard to believe that it’s been 30 years since the release of Hysteria,” said frontman Joe Elliott. “In some respects it really does seem like only yesterday. So, to mark this milestone, we wanted to do something very special for our fans and give them the definitive version of the album, one that incorporates all of the memories and milestones that we caught on tape and some of the madness that we got up to on the road. We hope it means as much to you as it does to us.”
