Def Leppard 2024. Def Leppard 2024

Def Leppard and Journey have just announced their 2024 North American co-headline stadium tour dates.

Def Leppard ended The World Tour finished in Melbourne, Australia on 14th November ending two years of touring with Motley Crue as co-headliners.

Now that the touring with Motley Crue has ended the band have just announced a new tour for 2024 with Journey having posted a short teaser video last night previewing a "Big Announcement".

That announcement has now been made and all the shows have now been fully revealed with the dates.

After playing only 9 shows in the USA in 2023 the band are now back to playing a full on North American tour.

Def Leppard x Journey The Summer Stadium Tour 2024

The tour starts on 6th July 2024 at Busch Stadium in St. Louis, MO.

It will end on 8th September in Denver, CO at Coors Field.

There are 23 shows in all. 21 of which were played in 2022.

Other cities which can be seen in full below include the "already-listed-on-Ticketmaster" shows in San Antonio, TX and Denver, CO.

And all those revealed by the venues last night in their teaser posts.

Co-Headliner Journey

Journey return as the main touring partner for 2024 six years on from the very successful 2018 North American tour.

A tour which saw the band played 60 shows together including 10 outdoor stadiums and two night stands at arenas in Los Angeles and Houston.

That tour followed on from the equally successful YEAH! tour of 2006 where they played sell out arenas shows over three different tour legs across the USA.

Journey currently have a 50th anniversary tour of arenas scheduled from February to April 2024 in the USA/Canada with special guests Toto.

It appears this joint tour news was revealed way back in May 2022 by Neal Schon who told an interviewer - "We’re already talking about going back out with Def Leppard, and that’s looking pretty solid that we’ll go into stadiums in ’24."

So it seems this tour has been in the works for over two years.

Opening Acts

Joining Def Leppard and Journey at most shows will be The Steve Miller Band who play with Def Leppard for the first time.

Cheap Trick also return for a few shows having played with the band in the UK/Ireland in December 2018 and at a handful of stadium shows in the USA.

They also toured with the band in 2005, 2006, 2008 and 2009.

Heart also return for a few shows and last toured with the band in 2011 on the Mirrorball tour in USA and Australia/New Zealand.

New Venue

Although Phoenix, AZ was played in 2022 the band will visit a new venue this time.

Chase Field will be played instead of State Farm Stadium swapping NFL for MLB.

A new tour website has gone live set up by tour promoters AEG Presents @
