“I’m really looking forward to getting back out there and playing some great music with some great people for some of the most appreciative audiences in the world,” Said Def Leppard front man Joe Elliott. “It really is always a pleasure.”
Def Leppard — Joe Elliott (vocals), Vivian Campbell (guitar), Phil Collen (guitar), Rick “Sav” Savage (bass) and Rick Allen (drums) — continues to be one of the most important forces in rock music. With 100 million records sold worldwide and two prestigious Diamond Awards to their credit, the group’s spectacular concerts, filled with powerful melodic rock anthems, continue to sell out venues worldwide. For the past thirty years, the band’s epic live shows and arsenal of hits have become synonymous with their name, leading Def Leppard to be heralded as an institution in both the music and touring industry.
Def Leppard’s influential career includes numerous hit singles and ground-breaking multi-platinum releases—including two of the best-selling albums of all time, Pyromania and Hysteria. The band’s 2015 US tour was one of the year’s highest grossing, hitting 70+ cities nationwide. In addition to the tour, Def Leppard debuted their self-titled new album in October 2015. The album secured the #1 slot on Billboard’s Top Rock Albums chart. It features the #1 Classic Rock chart single “Let’s Go” and their new single “Dangerous,” out now.
