Def Leppard announces US Tour with Heart

It’s been rumored for some time but, finally, Def Leppard have announced their 2011 summer US Tour with Heart.

The two-month swing kicks off in West Palm Beach on June 15, and runs through mid-September.

"After having had the last 18 months off,” says singer Joe Elliott, “Leppard are ready to get back on the road! Add Heart to the bill and it truly makes for a special evening."

"Nancy and I are really excited to be bringing Heart to the stage this summer with Def Leppard,” said Heart’s Ann Wilson. “It's going to be a powerful, monster show. The real thing. The summer of 2011 will be amazing.”
