Def Leppard officially confirmed a massive 58-city tour in 2018-2019 together with Journey band. 

The legendary old-school band Def Leppard recently announced their plans for 2018. The rockers are slated to embark on a grand tour across North America and U.K. In fact, Def Leppard will bring another band with them on the trek, and this will be the San Francisco-based progressive rock band Journey.

"Can you feel it? Do you believe it?", says the official video trailer.  The co-joint tour of Def Leppard and Journey promises to shake the rock scene once again as it did back in 2006 when the British were hitting the road in support of the Yeah! album.

Def Leppard 2018 North American Tour

Def Leppard and Journey will share the bill on the equal basis with the co-joint North American tour kicking off late in May and will last until October. 

There are a few interesting details. Ten live shows our of 58 will be held at stadiums. This is not typical for both bands. This is a justified decision as it hugely increases the overall ticket capacity of the itinerary. Especially, taking into consideration the success of recent Def Leppard tours. What is more, Def Leppard will perform a full concert at the iconic Madison Square Garden arena in New Your for the first time in the band's history (they did play there only during a charity show in 1992)

As for the schedule details, Def Leppard and Journey start their tour in Hartford on May 21 and play the last show in Los Angeles on October 6th. If you are interested in visiting one of the tour dates, check out the full schedule below. Chances are pretty high that Def Leppard and Journey will be playing near you in 2018 because 58 cities is a serious number of concerts!

Def Leppard 2018 UK Tour

There is also a sweet topper for Def Leppard fans in the UK. It has been a long wait but almost after three years, Def Leppard will be touring across the UK and Ireland. Def Leppard are expected to come back to their home country in December 2018 with the G3 tour. 

The British rockers have already unveiled the setlist saying they would play the whole Hysteria album that gained them a huge success and popularity. 

Preparations for the Tour

The band’s frontman and unchanging lead vocalist, Joe Elliott, said about the enormous efforts that the Def Leppard have set for the upcoming tour, and therefore promised the show to be one of their greatest tours ever since the release of the legendary ‘Hysteria’ album in 1987. By the way, in August 2017, the musicians had celebrated the 30th anniversary of the ‘Hysteria’ LP and had released a collectors edition box as well as remastered hits on vinyl.

Musicians are currently actively involved in the preparation of the tour’s venues, scenes, and so on. Joe Elliott jokes about preparation for the concert "We're gonna head off down to the Lego store and by some bricks and pieces. Try and lay everything out and make a model." During the tour, there will be at least 10 performances at the most famous and biggest stadiums in North America. In addition, all fan-favorites songs like 'Pour Some Sugar On Me', 'Dangerous', 'Let's Go', and 'Love Bites' will be on band’s setlist, but the main focus will be on the ‘Hysteria’ album.

The last time Journey and Def Leppard had performed together on one stage with a massive gig across North America was in 2006 and Joe Elliott said about it: ‘’We break the laws of physics. This is one and one makes three. We toured together in 2006 …it was a fantastic tour. And then we kind of, excuse the pun, went our separate ways and then it just came back that like those shows were huge but this one's gonna be even bigger.’’

The brand-new tour, which will take place from May clean to September 2018, will be closed by half of the Def Leppard’ performances, and with the other half of the Journey’, as the Joe noted himself ‘’We will take in turns to close the show out."
