Def Leppard to play NFL pre-game show at London’s Wembley Stadium

Def Leppard will perform the pre-game show at the first of this year's three NFL International Series games on Sunday, September 28, when the Oakland Raiders host the Miami Dolphins at London’s Wembley Stadium.

"Having most recently visited Wembley in May to watch Sheffield United in the FA Cup semifinal,” said singer Joe Elliott, “I know what the atmosphere in the ground is like for 'our' football, so I'm really looking forward to performing there before the NFL game , of course, soaking up the excitement of the actual match. I can't wait!"

A limited number of tickets returned by the participating teams will go on sale at 10 a.m. on Thursday, September 4 via www.ticketmaster.co.uk.

The Raiders-Dolphins game will kick off at 6:00 p.m. U.K. time (1:00p.m. ET) and will be aired live in the U.K. on Channel 4 and Sky Sports and in the U.S. on CBS.

Def Leppard are currently playing shows on a summer tour of North America with KISS, which will wrap up in Houston, Texas at the end of the month.
