The record became an instant hit in the U.K., peaking at number 15 on the mainstream chart. It also entered the U.S. Billboard 200, landing at moderate number 51.

By 1987, the band came out with their best-selling album, Hysteria, which topped the U.S. and U.K. charts. The album, which featured massive hit singles “Pour Some Sugar On Me,” “Love Bites,” “Hysteria,” and several others, sold over 25 million copies worldwide. The record has been regarded as one of the best-selling rock albums of the 80s and one of The 500 Greatest Rock & Metal Albums of All Time.

Since 1887, the Detroit Symphony Orchestra (DSO) has provided music lovers with incredible performances. The orchestra had its first performance at the Detroit Opera House, with several conductors leading the group during its early days. DSO has gone through several challenges, such as finding funds to continue and perform as a group, looking for venues to perform, the Great Depression, the Second World War, and many more. In the end, DSO has become one of North America's most accomplished and longest-running orchestras.
