James P. Hendershot – Joe Elliott of Def Leppard
Joe Elliot of Def Leppard gives a solid performance at Royal Farms Arena in Baltimore April 14.
Can you feel it?! Do you believe it?! Def Leppard is adding the “20/20 Vision Tour” with special guest ZZ Top to its touring schedule this fall.
The dates – a mix of amphitheaters and arenas – start Sept. 21 in Albany, N.Y., just two weeks after the band wraps up a summer tour with
Mötley Crüe, Poison and Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, meaning 2020 is going to be very busy for Def Leppard.
Def Leppard frontman Joe Elliott said in a statement: “What a year this is going to be! First, sold out stadiums, then we get to go on tour with the mighty ZZ Top! Having been an admirer of the band for a lifetime it’s gonna be a real pleasure to finally do some shows together…maybe some of us will get to go for a spin with Billy in one of those fancy cars …”
