Def Leppard get “Dangerous,” add more US dates for 2016

Posted by on October 21, 2015

As if playing a nearly 50-date tour with Styx and Tesla wasn’t enough, Def Leppard is still raring to go, and have announced more US tour dates for early 2016. They also recently released “Dangerous” (below) from their brand new (and still-unnamed) album which comes out on October 30th.

Earlier this year vocalist Joe Elliott commented on touring with both bands:

“We’ve toured with both of these bands before. Styx is a great bunch of guys and as American as mom’s apple pie all the way through. And we had Tesla on board when we did the Hysteria tour back in ’87; they were out for at least six or seven months with us before they went off to do their own thing. So it’ll be a great time on stage and backstage, I think.”

It must have been a great time if they’re extending the tour with another 13 shows! And it’s also good to see that guitarist Vivian Campbell’s health must be good enough for such long term routing into next year.
