Def Leppard announces 2017 North American tour with guests Poison and Tesla

Def Leppard will rock North America once again in 2017.  The multi-platinum sellers will headline a huge triple bill, which will also feature the return of Poison's original line up, as well as Tesla.

The “Pour Some Sugar on Me” hitmakers revealed the big news via a video announcement posted Jan. 12 at their official YouTube channel along with a press release posted at their official Def Leppard website. The legendary British rockers and guests will hit nearly forty cities from early April through late June, visiting markets missed during their massive 70-city tour in 2016 in continued support of their acclaimed 2015 self-titled studio album, which recently won Classic Rock magazine's Album of the Year award.

The spring triple threat will kick off Apr. 8 in Manchester, New Hampshire, at SNHU Arena. The power packed bill will rock multiple major cities, including stops in Montreal, Atlanta, Seattle and Chicago before wrapping up June 25 in Indianapolis, Indiana, at Klipsch Music Center.

Select presales and VIP packages for select dates will begin Tuesday, Jan. 17. Tickets for select dates will go on sale to the public for most dates on Fri., Jan. 20 at 10:00 a.m. local time. Fans can check out the official tour announcement above or click here for more information.

“We're thrilled to be able to take this tour to cities we didn't play in 2016, “ writes Def Leppard frontman Joe Elliott in the band's press release. 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."

“I could not be more excited,” adds Poison lead singer Bret Michaels. “I know all of us will give one thousand percent on stage and we are looking forward to performing our hits together.”
