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 release’s—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.
