Def Leppard singer’s Down N Outz announce UK tour

Def Leppard singer Joe Elliott’s side band, the Mott The Hoople-inspired Down N Outz, have announced dates for a fall UK tour.

The shows, in support of the band’s latest album, “The Further Adventures Of....”, start December 5 in Bristol.

Tickets go on sale this Friday, June 27 at all the usual outlets.

Down N’ Outz recently issued a video for “Rock And Roll Queen”; the band filmed the clip – directed by Lee Ford – last month at Sheffield’s Corporation nightclub.

Written by guitarist Mick Ralphs, the song originally appeared on Mott The Hoople’s delif-titled debut album.

Down N Outz – who play only Mott-releated tunes (including songs by Mott, Ian Hunter and British Lions) – were formed specifically to open a series of 2009 reunion shows for Mott The Hoople at London’s Hammersmith Odeon.

The group features Elliott, The Quireboys' Paul Guerin (Guitar), Guy Griffin (Guitar) and Keith Weir (keyboards), plus Phil Martin (drums).

“The Further Adventures Of…” is the band’s third project, following 2010’s debut album, “My Re-Generation”, and the “Live At Hammersmith Apollo” DVD recorded during the 2009 shows.

Elliott and Def Leppard have just launched a summer North American tour with KISS.
