Story and photo by Anne Erickson

After weeks of rumors that Def Leppard and Journey were plotting a co-headlining tour, the rumors have finally been confirmed. Def Leppard officially announced the tour late Thursday evening (Jan. 18), posting details on the 58-city, North American trek of major arenas and stadiums. The tour will kick off in Hartford, Connecticut, on May 21 and wrap up Oct. 6 in Inglewood, California, near Los Angeles.

Stops for the Def Leppard, Journey run include gigs in major cities, such as Cleveland, Detroit, Pittsburgh, Chicago, Nashville and beyond. Find the full roster of tour dates below. Tickets for the tour dates will go on sale starting at 10 a.m. local venue time on Saturday, Feb. 3, via LiveNation.com.

Following the co-headlining tour with Journey, Def Leppard will hit the road on a U.K. run with Cheap Trick, and on that tour, the guys will perform their classic 1987 album “Hysteria” from front to back. Those U.K. tour dates begin on Dec. 1 show in Dublin, Ireland, and continue through a Dec. 17 concert in Birmingham, England.

As if that weren’t enough Def Leppard news, the guys have also announced that their full catalog, which hasn’t been available digitally, will be available beginning now via all the major streaming and download services.
