Journey & Def Leppard announces massive co-headlining North American Tour, Def Leppard’s original masters now streaming

Posted by on January 19, 2018

With the hope that the rumors we heard about Ozzy touring with Stone Sour and Slayer with Anthrax, Testament, Lamb of God, and Behemoth, turn out to be true, these could be one of the biggest tours of the year. However, while we wait for these details to be confirmed, Journey and Def Leppard have announced a massive co-headlining North American run. The two will be stopping at 58 cities, which kicks off on May 21st in Hartford CT and concludes on October 6th in Los Angeles. Tickets go on sale on February 3rd. Additional ticket information such as presale and VIP will be announced shortly.

Now is the perfect time to listen to both Journey and Def Leppard’s catalog and, as of today, Def Leppard’s discography is available to stream and download for the first time ever.

Vocalist Joe Elliott commented:

“It is with a mixture of relief and euphoria that we now see our entire catalog finally getting a digital release. Having embraced every other format with open arms, especially and more recently the re-emergence of vinyl, we’re now going to be available to everyone everywhere, and honestly, it’s as exciting as the original releases were.”

Bassist Rick Savage added:

“Finally the wait is over! Our music is now available on all digital formats. Very excited. Thanks for your patience and continued support.”

Guitarist Phil Collen also commented:

“We felt we’d been left out of the digital party but it’s a thrill to us to finally accept the invitation and to be able to say, ‘Yeah, you can stream us, download us and get us great on all of these digital outlets.'”
