Def Leppard Tour 2019 Tickets

A few years ago, Def Leppard saw that Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson were embarking on a co-headlining tour, and it inspired them to find other artists to go on the road with who could make a tour an event. First, they paired with Bryan Adams and have since toured with Poison, Kiss and Cheap Trick, among others. This summer, they'll be hitting the road with Journey – a band they toured with in 2006.

The two bands will take turns closing out the shows that will include concerts at iconic venues such as Boston’s Fenway Park and New York’s Madison Square Garden, an arena at which Def Leppard will play its first ever full concert. (The English rockers played a charity concert there in 1992.) Of the 58 dates, ten will take place at stadiums, a rarity for both bands and a sign of how confident promoter Live Nation (LYV, +1.48%) is in the tour’s prospects. The itinerary starts in Hartford on May 21 and wraps up in Los Angeles October 6th. Tickets will be available for sale to the general public on February 3.

This is the latest in a series of co-headlining packages for Journey, who've also appeared over the last few years with the Doobie Brothers, Santana, Asia, and the Steve Miller Band. The 2006 tour has been described as one of Def Leppard's most successful since the early '90s. Tickets for most shows go on sale Saturday, Feb. 3 through Live Nation.
