Def Leppard have released a special acoustic medley of songs that were performed during the band’s 2012 live shows. The seven-and-a-half-minute medley, which is available on iTunes starting today, includes portions of  “Where Does Love Go When It Dies,” “Now,” “When Love and Hate Collide,” “Have You Ever Needed Someone So Bad,” and “Two Steps Behind.”

Joe Elliott of Def Leppard told AOL’s Noisecreep: “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. 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.” Order the song here:

Def Leppard will follow Motley Crue and Guns N’ Roses as the next band to undertake a residence in Las Vegas, with ‘Viva Hysteria!’ to kick off in March. The band will play its 1987 album ‘Hysteria’ in its entirety as part of the residency. Tickets are on sale now and start at $49.50, with floor seats priced at $125.
