Def Leppard detail plans for stadium tour with Motley Crue

Def Leppard singer Joe Elliott is sharing details about the group’s upcoming US stadium tour with Motley Crue.

Set to open June 16 in Atlanta, GA, the series will see the two bands joined by Poison and Joan Jett & The Blackhearts.

In a new interview with Columbus, OH station QFM96, Elliott shares the headliners’ plans for the series, which will run into early September.

"We're taking turns; 36 shows, so it's 18 each,” Elliott explain of the Def Leppard/Motley Crue rotation. “It's all been worked out very scientifically. It's the same way that we did it with Journey in 2018. Exactly the same principle."

The tour will start a few weeks after Def Leppard release their new album, “Diamond Star Halos”, on May 27; the set was recently launched with the lead single, “Kick.”
