Def Leppard & Journey confirm giant co-headlining North American tour

It was announced today that English rock greats Def Leppard and San Francisco legends Journey will be joining forces for a colossal co-headlining tour of North America for this spring through summer.

The massive 58-city voyage launches on the east coast and Canda with shows in CT, PA, Toronto, and New York at Albany’s Times Union Center on May 23 [TIX tba], Buffalo’s KeyBank Center on May 26 [TIX tba], and Manhattan’s Madison Square Garden on June 13 [TIX tba].

Additionally, the outing hits Newark, NJ’s Prudential Center on June 15 before cruising through midwest territories and more.

Speaking of the upcoming trip, Journey‘s Neal Schon commented:

These co-headlining Journey/Def Leppard dates will be epic classic rock shows. So many hits. It will be great to see you all, friends!

Def Leppard‘s Joe Elliott stated:

This tour is going to be a blast! We’ve toured together before and it was massive. This time it’s going to be even bigger and better!

Journey‘s Jonathan Cain added:

We are all anxious to share our sound with the world again and, along with Def Leppard, we are part of a world-class package to the rock stage that spans decades and represents a multi-platinum legacy.

Finally, Def Leppard‘s Rick Savage said:

12 years ago we embarked on a US tour with Journey and it was an absolute blast. Looking forward to hooking up again. Believe me, this will be even more spectacular.
