Def Leppard Announce Rescheduled Tour Dates

Several weeks after postponing a batch of tour dates in order to give singer Joe Elliott time to recover from a throat ailment, Def Leppard have updated their concert calendar with rescheduled shows.

Of the postponed dates, only Atlantic City and Brooklyn have yet to be rescheduled, while the group’s plans for a winter stop in San Antonio appear to be off the table entirely. Nine shows in all have new dates — none of which will feature support from Def Leppard’s previous tourmates Styx and Tesla. You can check out the complete list below, and visit the band’s website for further details regarding ticketing and assorted VIP packages.

Def Leppard’s 2016 tour comes in support of their recently released self-titled album, which debuted at No. 10 in the U.S. after its arrival in late October. Two singles from the record, “Let’s Go” and “Dangerous,” have topped the Billboard rock chart — all of which have offered the group encouragement to deliver another new LP soon.

“I think we’ll see another record a hell of a lot sooner than the time between this one and the last one,” guitarist Vivian Campbell told Billboard. “There’s always stuff around. There’s always ideas. Everyone in the band is reasonably prolific. With Leppard it’s never the question of not having enough songs; it’s a question of what kind of songs. Every Def Leppard album has to have all these different flavors and hit all these different marks. It’s not a question of just showing up with a dozen rock songs. So that’s what takes a lot of time.”
