Said Joe Elliott of Def Leppard, “Def Leppard and Journey will be reuniting and hitting the road together
for the Summer Stadium Tour with Steve Miller, Cheap Trick & Heart on select shows, which makes for an
amazing night of music! Having just completed a sensational 18 month run promoting our Diamond Star
Halos album, we shall hit the boards running with a brand-new stage show and set of songs that will
celebrate specific parts of our history. We may even have a surprise or two up our sleeves … so, wanna
join us!??! … See you in the summer!”
Def Leppard released their critically and commercially acclaimed 12th studio album Diamond Star Halos
in 2022, which charted all over the world including a top 5 and top 10 in both North America and the U.K.
They followed that release with Drastic Symphonies in May 2023, featuring Def Leppard’s greatest
produced tracks dramatically reimagined, via the band teaming with London’s iconic The Royal
Philharmonic Orchestra at Abbey Road. The album spent 15 weeks at #1 on the Billboard Current Classical Chart. In early 2023, the band scored a U.K. No 1 Netflix film with their cameo in acclaimed movie Bank Of Dave. The band also embarked on a sold-out stadium tour across North America with Mötley Crüe in 2022, selling over 1.3 million tickets. In 2023, the tour wowed audiences throughout Central and South America, U.S., Japan, Australia and Europe including a stop at the iconic Wembley Stadium in London.
