We’re looking to forward to seeing you out there, somewhere soon!” said Joe Elliott of Def Leppard.

“We had an incredible time playing The Stadium Tour in North America this summer and we truly can’t wait to take the show around the globe with The WORLD Tour in 2023.

Lytham Festival director Peter Taylor said: “What a closing night we have planned! For as long as I can remember our loyal Lytham customers have been asking for a rock night like no other so in 2023 we have arguably the two biggest rock icons in the world and they are going to be performing right here in Lytham.
