Def Leppard Announce North American Tour With Poison and Tesla!
Fresh off winning their fan voted Classic Rock Magazine Album of the Year award, Def Leppard announce they will return to the road this spring for a three month run across North America. The Live Nation promoted outing will storm through cities across parts of the U.S. and Canada. This new leg of dates follows the groups massive 70+ city 2016 tour and is set to kick off on April 8th.
Def Leppard Front man Joe Elliott says, “Our last full concert DVD, excluding Viva! Hysteria, was 1987’s in the round in your face which was shot on video. We felt an updated version was way overdue so here it is, the brand new Def Leppard concert experience!” says, “We’re thrilled to be able to take this tour to cities we didn’t play in 2016. The demand for us to return, or rather extend the tour was phenomenal! There’s a great buzz around the band right now and we’re loving the fact that we can do this with the latest album being so well received.”
In conjunction with the announcement of their North American tour, Def Leppard also premieres the live video for “Animal” via Brave Words. The live video clip is from the band’s recently announced concert film, And There Will Be A Next Time – Live From Detroit which will be released on February 10th in partnership with Eagle Rock Entertainment.
