One Of The Biggest Rock n Roll Tour Might Hit Your State This Year


Holly Molly On A Pogo Stick!

Journey and Def Leppard confirmed that they’re touring together this coming summer.

The massive 58-city tour will undertake on May 21 in Halford, Connecticut’s XL Center,  and will wind up ending on October 6 at the Forum in Los Angeles.


Journey co-founder Neal Schon says,

“These co-headlining Journey/Def Leppard dates will be epic classic rock shows. So many hits. It will be great to see you all, friends!”

Taking in both arenas and stadiums, the pair will equally split highlighting spots, as well as visits to Madison Square Garden and Fenway Park. Tickets for most venues will go on sale on February 3 through Live Nation. You can check the complete list of dates and cities down below, and see if it might hit your State.

Both bands last shared a “score” in 2006, when Def Leppard were on a tour in support of Yeah! And at that certain point, Journey were also in the midst of Jeff Scott Soto’s brief tenure; Since then Arnel Pineda has been their frontman.

Rumors of a possible pairing began circulating last summer when Journey bassist Ross Valory mentioned it ahead of a show in New Orleans, and later confirmed by Def Leppard guitarist Vivian Campbell,

“I know that nothing is set in stone, but negotiations are going on, and one of the acts we’re talking about touring with next year could possibly be Journey.”

The big news comes almost few months after Journey were inducted into the Rock Hall.
