Def Leppard announces Canadian tour

Def Leppard have announced dates for a summer tour of Canada.

Joined by regular touring partners Tesla, the UK rockers will open a three-week, 11-show series in Halifax, NS on July 12 (see dates below).

A Rock Brigade Fan Club presale and VIP packages will go on sale Friday, January 11 at 10am local time, with genral public tickets available starting Friday, January 18 at 10am local time.

The group recently released a new greatest-hits collection entitled "The Story So Far - The Best Of Def Leppard."

The package traces the band’s singles and fan favorites from the third album, 1983’s “Pyromania”, to today, and includes a remix of the group’s cover of David Essex’s 1973 hit “Rock On”, and recent take on Depeche Mode’s 1989 single, “Personal Jesus.”

Def Leppard will be inducted into the 2019 Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame at the 34th annual ceremony in New York on March 29.

Despite being eligible since 2005, the group gained entry on their first nomination while winning the Fan Ballot with more than half a million votes; they’ll be inducted alongside Stevie Nicks, The Cure, Janet Jackson, Radiohead, Roxy Music and The Zombies.

Def Leppard delivered the No. 6 Rock News Story Of The Year and the No. 8 Rock News Story Of The Year and were named the No. 4 Rock News Artist Of The Year as part of the 2018 hennemusic Rock News Awards.
