Def Leppard and Motley Crue to Tour the UK

Published on September 5th, 2011


September 2, 2011 - Two of heavy metal’s titans, Def Leppard and Motley Crue, have both enjoyed separately successful tours of the USA this summer. Leppard’s trek with Heart brought out the fans in droves, as did the Crue’s venture with Poison. But for UK fans, there’s a special treat on the way: Def Leppard is coming back to their homeland for an arena tour — and they’re bringing Motley Crue along with them. To top it all off, special guests Steel Panther will warm up the crowd each night on the tour.

Joe Elliott said: “I can’t tell you enough how thrilled I am to announce this tour. We always strive to make our shows an event and to have Motley Crue & Steel Panther along for the ride makes this an event that just can’t be missed for rock fans across the UK.”

Nikki Sixx had this to say about the tour: “Motley Crüe is excited to do some destruction with long time peers Def Leppard on tour this holiday season. We have never toured together so hopefully there will be some de-virginizing of each-others fans and in the end one f*cking wild party together!”
