Def Leppard and Whitesnake announce UK tour

Def Leppard and Whitesnake have announced a co-headline UK tour this winter.

The pair will be joined by openers Black Star Riders for a triple bill for a 10-show run in December.

"I am very excited to be working with Whitesnake again, we had such a wonderful time when we did it back in 2008,” says Leppard frontman Joe Elliott. “It’s a great experience for rock fans to be able to see two great live bands on the same stage on the same night."

"Ohh, have you got trouble…Brother Joe & The Lepps?…D.C. & The Snakes?... Them Black Star Riders?…On the same night???…I can’t wait!!...SEE YOU THERE!!!” added Whitesnake’s David Coverdale.

Whitesnake will be touring in support of their Deep Purple tribute record, “The Purple Album”, due for release May 19.

Thin Lizzy-offshoot Black Star Riders recently issued their second album, “The Killer Instinct.”

Tickets for the UK dates will go on sale Wednesday, April 1 at 10am local via Live Nation.
