Def Leppard announce European tour dates

Def Leppard have announced the first series of dates for a spring 2015 European tour.

The band have unveiled plans for 10 shows starting May 19 in Warsaw, Poland.

The trek includes festival appearances in Denmark, Sweden and Finland.

More shows will be announced soon.

Meanwhile, Def Leppard vocalist Joe Elliott’s side project, Down N Outz, are gearing up to launch a UK tour on December 5 in Bristol.

Playing in support of their latest release, “The Further Adventures Of…”, the group – who play only Mott The Hoople-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.
