Def Leppard have announced a new slate of fall dates for their 20/20 Vision tour. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees will welcome fellow rock legends ZZ Top on select dates.
Produced by Live Nation, this new leg of dates will immediately follow the group’s summer stadium tour with Motley Crue, which has already sold more than 1.1 million tickets.
“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 [ZZ Top front man] Billy [F Gibbons] in one of those fancy cars …” said Def Leppard front man Joe Elliott in a release.
The fall dates will launch on Sept. 21 at Times Union Center in Albany, New York. The 16-date trek will run through Tennessee, Virginia, Alabama, Louisiana, Nebraska, Michigan and more. Scheduled dates will come to a close on Oct. 18 at Spokane Arena in Washington.
“We’re excited about hitting the road with Def Leppard this fall; we’ve been fans of theirs since forever,” said Gibbons in a release. “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.”
Tickets go on sale to the general public beginning Feb. 21 at 10am local time. Check out the full routing below.
