Poison drummer Rikki Rockett has commented on the 2012 Def Leppard/Poison tour whilst being interviewed at NAMM.

Rikki was at the trade show which took place from 19th-22nd January in Anaheim, California and spoke to Backstage Axxess reporter Gus Griesinger. He was there to promote his Rockett Drum Works company but also made a brief comment on the upcoming tour.

His comments came a couple of weeks before his new announcement on facebook and twitter that the tour is going ahead. As yet though there has been no announcement of dates.

Backstage Axxess - Rikki Rockett January Interview Quote

Are you guys (Poison) gonna be touring, I think Bret said something about Def Leppard possibly this summer?

"It does look like we're gonna go out with Def Leppard."

Joan Jett possibly too?

"You know, I don't know about that. That would be cool, I'm a Joan fan you know - But yeah so we're going out with Def Leppard. I don't know who the other act will be. And then the release of the movie 'Rock Of Ages', Def Leppard and Poison are both on that. (it comes out in) June."
