def leppard journey

After heavy rumours all month, it is now confirmed that Def Leppard and Journey will undertake a fifty-eight date co-headlining tour of North America, kicking off on 21st May in Hartford, Connecticut.

Journey guitarist Neal Schon said:

"These co-headlining Journey/Def Leppard dates will be epic classic rock shows. So many hits. It will be great to see you all, friends!"

The shows will feature all-new production from both bands, and Def Leppard frontman Joe Elliott said:

"This tour is going to be a blast! We've toured together before and it was massive. This time it's going to be even bigger and better!"

Journey keyboardist Jonathan Cain added:

"We are all anxious to share our sound with the world again and, along with Def Leppard, we are part of a world-class package to the rock stage that spans decades and represents a multi-platinum legacy."

The two bands toured together in 2006. The trek was reportedly one of Def Leppard's most successful since the 1992-1993 'Adrenalize' tour. Def Leppard guitarist Phil Collen has said in past interviews that he would love to tour with Journey again.
