DEF LEPPARD Confirm 16-Date 20/20 VISION Tour For SEP/OCT With ZZ TOP
Def Leppard have today confirmed their 20/20 Vision tour with ZZ Top with 16 dates in September and October.
The tour will start in Albany, NY on 21st September at Times Union Center.
It is due to end on 18th October in Spokane, WA at the Spokane Arena.
This will be the first time the band have toured with ZZ Top who will be Special Guests at these shows.
In 1985/1986 there had agreed to support them in the UK/Europe as Rick Allen's initial comeback shows were planned.
This was cancelled after ZZ Top's album recording was delayed and their tour plans changed.
They did play together in June 2009 when Def Leppard first headlined the Download Festival at Donington Park when ZZ Top were also on the bill.
The 16 dates will see Def Leppard play in Brandon, MS for the very first time.
20/20 Vision is the name given to the upcoming video release/reissue series first mentioned by Joe during recent interviews.
One of the planned releases is a double DVD/Blu-ray featuring the 2018 UK Hysteria Tour show in London and the Sin City Residency shows recorded in September 2019.
The tour is being billed as 'Rock And Roll Hall of Fame Inductees' - ZZ Top were inducted in 2004 with Def Leppard joining them in March 2019.
Tickets are due to go on sale from 20th February.
