Def Leppard 2020. Def Leppard 2020

Def Leppard have now confirmed their 20/20 Vision tour with ZZ Top for September and October has been cancelled.

The tour will start in Albany, NY on 21st September at Times Union Center.

The venue site has now confirmed the show and entire tour has been cancelled.

Read the full press statement below.

It was due to end on 18th October in Spokane, WA at the Spokane Arena after 16 dates.

The tour would have marked the band's first time playing in Brandon, MS.

Def Leppard and ZZ Top played together in June 2009 when Def Leppard first headlined the Download Festival at Donington Park when ZZ Top were also on the bill.

The 20/20 Vision reisues/releases now look set to be delayed and possibly given new titles.

The tour was billed as 'Rock And Roll Hall of Fame Inductees' - with ZZ Top inducted in 2004 before Def Leppard joined them in March 2019.

Tickets had been on sale from 20th February and can now be refunded.

Phil Collen hinted at the cancellation last month and it has now been confirmed with the band not set to play again until June 2021.
