Def Leppard To Headline Tour With Poison and Cheap Trick

Def Leppard To Headline Tour With Poison and Cheap Trick
If you're looking to get some sugar poured on you, or simply get rocked, well Def Leppard are here for you. The long-running British rockers have announced a massive North American tour where they'll be joined by the hair metal balladry of Poison and the glimmering proto-power pop of Cheap Trick. The tour, which kicks off in New Jersey on June 23, will see the bands covering most of the U.S., and making a stop in Toronto. Let's hope Cheap Trick drummer Bun E. Carlos isn't too busy with his other band.

In an interview with Billboard, singer Joe Elliott explained that the band plan to cut the bullshit with their sets, saying, "We're going out with three bands, which limits the amount of time we can play to about 90 minutes. When you do your greatest hits and some new material or extra stuff you might throw in, you have got to push and shove and clamp down. No big, long speeches from moi. You have to do the AC/DC thing and just bang through everything."

Def Leppard will also be reissuing their classic albums Pyromania and Adrenalize, each with a bonus disc, sometime this year.
