Live Nation are thrilled to announce that two of the world’s most legendary purveyors of Rock ‘n’ Roll, Def Leppard and Mötley Crüe, have joined forces for the first time ever, for a tour that will see them tear through 6 cities in the UK this December with very special guests, Steel Panther.

 

Def Leppard remain one of the world’s biggest and most successful live acts. Before this year, the band last played the UK and Eire in 2009 – headlining Download festival that year after a hugely successful sold out UK Arena tour in 2008. June 2011 saw Def Leppard headline Download Festival for the second time in three years. 2011 has also seen the release of the band first ever live album, “Mirrorball” featuring classic tracks, three band new recordings and a bonus DVD and Leppard's first coffee table book, titled "Def Leppard – The Definitive Visual History”.

 

With more than 65 million albums sold worldwide and two prestigious Diamond Awards (Def Leppard are one of only five rock bands to have two consecutive 10 million plus selling albums in the U.S.  The others are The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and Van Halen.) to their credit, Def Leppard - Joe Elliott (vocals), Phil Collen (guitar), Rick "Sav" Savage (bass), Vivian Campbell (guitar) and Rick Allen (drums)— continue to be one of the most important forces in rock music. Over the course of their career, the band has produced a series of classic groundbreaking albums that set the bar for generations of music fans and artists alike. The group’s spectacular live shows, filled with powerful melodic rock anthems, continue to sell out venues worldwide. Their epic live show and arsenal of hits have become synonymous with their name, leading Def Leppard to be heralded as an institution in both the music and touring industry. 

 

Def Leppard frontman Joe Elliott says, “I can't tell you enough how thrilled I am to announce this tour!! ... We always strive to make our shows an event & to have Motley Crue & Steel Panther along for the ride makes this an event that just can't be missed for rock fans across the UK !! ... Come join us on what will be the event of the year!!

 

Nikki Sixx, Mick Mars, Tommy Lee and Vince Neil , collectively Mötley Crüe, returned to the top of the charts with Saints of Los Angeles, their first studio album in a decade with the original line-up back in 2008. Based on the band’s New York Times bestseller ‘The Dirt’, the disc debuted at #1 on the Independent Album chart and was the top debut of the week on the Billboard Top 200 albums at #4.  “Saints of Los Angeles,” which was nominated for a Best Hard Rock Performance Grammy Award was also noted as the #1 Rock Song of the Year by iTunes critics. The band also started Crüe Fest in 2008, which was the most successful touring rock festival and the number ten tour overall (according to Rolling Stone), playing for nearly half a million rock fans throughout North America. This was swiftly followed by Crüe Fest 2 in 2009, during which the band played the whole of the Dr Feelgood album every night in celebration of their 20th anniversary. Mötley Crüe has sold more than 80 million album copies worldwide,including 25 million in the U.S. ). They will also be releasing a brand new expanded Greatest Hits package which will include the Crüe Fest DVD in November.


Nikki Sixx had the following to say “Motley Crüe is excited to do some destruction with long time peers Def Leppard on tour this holiday season. We have never toured together so hopefully there will be some de-virginizing of each-others fans and in the end one fucking wild party together.” Nikki Sixx

Steel Panther have recently confirmed that the release date for their highly anticipated second album, ‘Balls Out’, will be 17th October via Universal Records. The first single taken from the album will be ‘If You Really Really Love Me’ which impacts on 7th November. 


Frontman Michael Starr commented “To rock with Lep and Crüe is a dream come true!! This will be the best tour package all year hands down - Now we got to learn our songs from the new CD”   Not be be outdone, guitarist Satchel added “Getting the tour with Def Leppard and Motley Crüe is the best thing that’s happened to Steel Panther since we got the Viagra endorsement – we’re hard already!”

This will, without doubt, be THE Rock show of the year, not to be missed by any self-respecting fan of all things loud and heavy. Tour dates are below:
