Def Leppard Announce North American Summer Tour with Styx and Tesla

By Philip Cosores

If you missed out on Def Leppard‘s massive co-headlining tour with KISS last summer (or even if you did catch it), the good news is that the they will be embarking on yet another huge summer tour.

Instead of romping around the States with four dudes in masks, they will be headlining on their own, but with some pretty impressive support: Styx and Tesla.

The tour doesn’t come without reason. Def Leppard is expected to put out a new album in late-spring. Lead singer Joe Elliott recently teased the new music to Shredload.com, saying, “Some of the stuff sounds absolutely like us. Some of the stuff sounds like things that people our age should be writing these days. So it’s a bit of everything, really. Stuff that reminds us of stuff that we grew up listening to. So it’s very much in the classic-rock mold, but it’s also not stale and sterile.” (via Blabbermouth)

The tour’s silver lining is that it means guitarist Vivian Campbell must be in good enough health to tour. Campbell has fought Hodgkin’s lymphoma a couple of times since announcing his ailment in 2013, and it has reportedly been in remission since last summer.
