Def Leppard Announces Summer 2007 Tour

United States
Great Britain’s Premiere Arena Rock Band Takes to the Road for a 50-City Summer Tour Kicking Off June 27th

NEW YORK, April 16, 2007 — Following on the heels of their massively successful 2006

concert tour, Def Leppard, one of rock’s most exciting bands, have announced a mega summer concert tour that is set to hit all corners of the United States, as well as Canada. This year’s outing will include 50 dates, kicking off on June 27th in Cincinnati and culminating on September 30th in Edmonton. Styx and Foreigner are scheduled to appear on select dates with tickets for the Chicago, St. Louis, Indianapolis, Detroit and Boston dates going on sale Saturday, April 21st. Tickets are available at www.livenation.com. The tour is being produced by Live Nation.

2006 was a watershed year for Def Leppard with the group’s summer concert tour becoming a must-see phenomenon. It was extended three times due to overwhelming demand for tickets from concert-goers and quickly became one of the year’s most successful live music events. 2006 also included a gold record for Rock Of Ages: The Definitive Collections, marking the group’s 10th album certification, as well as two critically acclaimed album releases; an exclusive limited edition version of the group’s classic Hysteria album and Yeah!, a tribute to the band’s musical heroes, that received raves from Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone and USA Today and featured the group’s now definitive cover of Rock On.

With more than 65 million albums sold worldwide, not to mention two prestigious Diamond Awards to their credit, Def Leppard -- Joe Elliott (vocals), Vivian Campbell (guitar), Phil Collen (guitar), Rick “Sav” Savage (bass) and Rick Allen (drums) -- continues to be one of the most important forces in rock music. The group’s spectacular live shows are filled with hit after hit from their groundbreaking discography that set the sound for generations of music fans and artists. Def Leppard’s powerful rock anthems have become synonymous with their name and it’s easy to see why rock fans keep gravitating toward their electrifying live performances. On their 2007 tour, the band is promising a highly-charged, no-nonsense set of rocking performances, packed with hits spanning its entire career.
