Def Leppard & Motley Crue announce UK tour

UK rock fans are in for a treat this December as Def Leppard and Motley Crue team up for a British tour.

The rock powerhouses will be joined by Steel Panther for the 6-date trip.

"I can't tell you enough how thrilled I am to announce this tour!,” said Leppard’s Joe Elliott. “We always strive to make our shows an event and to have Motley Crue and Steel Panther along for the ride makes this an event that just can't be missed for rock fans across the U.K.!! Come join us on what will be the event of the year!"

"Motley Crue is excited to do some destruction with longtime peers Def Leppard on tour this holiday season,”
added Nikki Sixx of the Crue. “We have never toured together so hopefully there will be some de-virginizing of each-other's fans and in the end one f**king wild party together."

Leppard are touring in support of their first live album, “Mirror Ball”; the Crue spent the summer on the road across America with Poison and the New York Dolls; and, Steel Panther are releasing their new album, “Balls Out,” on October 18.
