Fresh off winning their fan voted Classic Rock Magazine Album of the Year award, DEF LEPPARD have announced that they will return to the road this spring for a three month run across North America. The Live Nation promoted outing will storm through cities across parts of the U.S. and Canada. This new leg of dates follows the group's massive 70+ city 2016 tour and is set to kick off on April 8th in Manchester, NH and wrap on June 25th in Indianapolis, IN. Joining DEF LEPPARD on most dates are POISON and TESLA. Please see full tour routing below. Tickets will go on sale on January 20th and 21st at LiveNation.com.

Front man Joe Elliott says, “We’re thrilled to be able to take this tour to cities we didn’t play in 2016. The demand for us to return, or rather extend the tour was phenomenal! There’s a great buzz around the band right now and we’re loving the fact that we can do this with the latest album being so well received.”

The tour also marks the first time in over 5 years that POISON will tour with all original members Bret Michaels, CC DeVille, Bobby Dall and Rikki Rockett. POISON has sold over 40 million records and is is set to perform some of its greatest hits including "Nothin’ but a Good Time", "Every Rose has its Thorn", "Talk Dirty To Me", "Unskinny Bop" and "Something To Believe In".

“I could not be more excited,” declared POISON frontman Bret Michaels. “I know all of us will give one thousand percent onstage and we are looking forward to performing our hits together. I personally could not be more thankful for the three generations of fans and I love the music of DEF LEPPARD and TESLA. This will be an amazing night of rock ‘n’ roll. Don’t wait because God only knows.”

DEF LEPPARD will appear at all of the 38 dates listed below, including four solo headlining dates and four festival appearances. None of those eight shows will feature the other two acts. POISON will join them for the remaining 30 dates, with TESLA excluded from two more — April 26 in Louisville and June 21 in Kansas City.
