Def Leppard and Journey to Tour
Def Leppard and Journey will be doing a tour for VH1 Classic and Live Nation. Def Leppard's guitarist, Phil Collen said the following on the tour: "Only six months between tours for DEF LEPPARD...this is amazing...WOW. I think we're getting the hang of this! Usually, we always have to redefine and reorient ourselves to touring as we are used to a three year gap between tours because of the recording process. This time, we had the album in the can so we are good to go. We're really psyched to be hitting the road this summer and are looking forward to seeing all of our fans again."
Journey's keyboardist, Jonathan Cain also commented on the tour, here's what he had to say: "It's a band I've admired for a long time," he says. "We're honored to be performing with a band that received their Diamond Award (an award given for 10,000,000 albums sold) at the same ceremony when we received our Diamond Award. So it seems fitting that we go out together after all these years and celebrate a lot of good years of rock and roll."
