Def Leppard‘s latest summer package tour includes some new friends as well as familiar faces.

The band took to social media to announce the new dates, publishing a Facebook post that reveals they’ll be hitting the road this summer with REO Speedwagon and Tesla. As fans are no doubt aware, Tesla’s been touring with Def Leppard for some time — but these dates represent a twist on recent years, which have seen the duo sharing a bill with Styx.

The news comes just a few days after Def Leppard announced a round of rescheduled dates making up for shows they’d had to postpone due to throat problems being suffered by singer Joe Elliott. With Elliott back on the mend, they’re due back on tour starting May 1, when they play the Moonstone Festival in Orlando.

Take a look at the complete list of currently announced dates below, and visit Def Leppard’s official site for detailed ticketing information.
