Poison are doing up another big summer tour in 2012.
Following last year’s trek with Motley Crue, the band will hit the road with Def Leppard for shows this summer – cities, dates and more are to be announced.
Poison drummer Rikki Rockett confirmed the tour news via his Facebook page here.
Rockett’s info follows a recent interview Leppard guitarist Phil Collen did with AOL's Noisecreep, where he talked about the band’s summer plans.
"We're actually going to be back on tour around when the [film adaptation of the hit Broadway musical 'Rock Of Ages'] is out, and it would be a lot of fun to get some of the other bands featured in 'Rock Of Ages' out with us," he said. "Nothing has been finalized yet, but apparently Poison will be joining us — at least according to Bret Michaels, who has been telling everyone that they'll be touring with us this year. [Laughs]”
“We went out with Poison in 2009, and we all had so much fun,” continued Collen. “If it does end up happening like that, I would love for the third band to be someone like Twisted Sister, since they're also in the new movie. I think that would make for a great lineup."
Adapted from Broadway for the big screen, “Rock Of Ages” is a love story told through the music of Pat Benatar, Bon Jovi, Journey, Poison, Twisted Sister and other artists from the 1980s.
"Rock Of Ages" stars Tom Cruise, Alec Baldwin, Russell Brand, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Paul Giamatti, Malin Akerman and others; it is due in theaters on June 1.
