LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) — British rockers Def Leppard announced a short North American tour featuring special guests ZZ Top.
Produced by Live Nation, this new leg of dates will immediately follow the group’s successful stadium run as part of a double bill with Motley Crue, which has already sold 1.1 million tickets.
The newly-announced 20/20 Vision fall tour dates kick off on Sept. 21st at Times Union Center in Albany, NY and wrap on Oct. 18 at Spokane Arena in Spokane, Washington.
What a year this is going to be! First, sold-out stadiums, then we get to go on tour with the mighty ZZ Top! Having been an admirer of the band for a lifetime it’s gonna be a real pleasure to finally do some shows together…maybe some of us will get to go for a spin with Billy in one of those fancy cars …”
“We’re excited about hitting the road with Def Leppard this fall; we’ve been fans of theirs since forever,” adds ZZ Top’s Billy F Gibbons. “We’ve been at this for 50 years now and the forthcoming run with them underscores that the good times are really just beginning.” He adds, “Joe Elliott is always welcome to ride ‘shotgun’ with us and we won’t even ask him to pay for the gas.”
