Eighties hair metal titans Def Leppard, Poison and Tesla will unite on a sprawling, nostalgia-packed U.S. tour starting in April 2017.
The summertime trek begins April 8th at the SNHU Arena in Manchester, New Hampshire and wraps June 25th at the Klipsch Music Center in Indianapolis, Indiana. Tickets for most shows go on sale January 20th and 21st via Live Nation (Green Bay and Chicago dates go on sale February 10th), while members of the Def Leppard Rock Brigade Concert Club will have access to presale tickets starting January 17th.
Def Leppard will play 38 shows, focusing specifically on cities they missed in 2016. The group's itinerary also includes four solo headlining shows in Canada, plus a handful of festival dates, including sets at Fort Rock, Rocklahoma and River City Rockfest. Poison and Tesla will share the bill the rest of the way, save for gigs in Louisville and Kansas City that will not feature the latter band.
As a tour teaser, Def Leppard debuted a live video of "Animal" from their upcoming concert film, And There Will Be A Next Time – Live From Detroit, out February 10th. The group's last studio effort, Def Leppard arrived in 2015.
