Def Leppard & Journey Announce Joint Stadium Tour Joined By Steve Miller Band, Heart & Cheap Trick


Def Leppard and Journey are set to hit the road next summer as the bands announce a joint stadium tour. Featuring stops in Atlanta, Chicago, Nashville, New York City, Los Angeles and more, the bands will be joined by Steve Miller Band, Heart and Cheap Trick on select dates.

The trek includes 23 cities, kicking off on July 6 at Busch Stadium in St. Louis, Missouri. They’ll play iconic stadiums throughout the run, including Nissan Stadium in Nashville, SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles, Wrigley Field in Chicago, Citi Field in Queens, New York, Fenway Park in Boston and more. The dates wrap up on Sept. 8 at Coors Field in Denver.

AEG is promoting the tour, and will be co-promoting the show alongside Live Nation during Def Leppard and Journey’s performance at Fenway Park. Journey is represented by Creative Artists Agency worldwide, while Def Leppard is represented by Independent Artist Group in North America and International Talent Booking worldwide, excluding North America. Def Leppard is managed by CSM Management’s Mike Kobayashi.

“Def Leppard and Journey will be reuniting and hitting the road together for the Summer Stadium Tour with Steve Miller, Cheap Trick and Heart on select shows, which makes for an amazing night of music,” Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott said in a statement. “Having just completed a sensational 18-month run promoting our Diamond Star Halos album, we shall hit the boards running with a brand-new stage show and set of songs that will celebrate specific parts of our history. We may even have a surprise or two up our sleeves…”

Def Leppard is fresh off their stadium run alongside Mötley Crüe, which featured numerous sell-outs across the globe. Highlights from the tour include a gross of $2.1 million in Bogota, Columbia, in February, $4.6 million in San Francisco in September 2022 and a $6.3 million gross at Los Vegas’ Allegiant Stadium on Sept. 9, 2022. The tour wrapped last month in Melbourne, Australia. In 2022, the tour came in at No. 3 on Pollstar‘s Year-End Top 200 North American Tours chart.

Journey went out on the road earlier this year on a trek that was also promoted by AEG Presents, with dates across North America. Highlights from their most recent trek include grosses over $1.1 million in San Antonio, Texas and Memphis, Tennessee. The band brought in $1.2 million at Capital One Arena in Washington, D.C., on March 1.

“We are thrilled to be back on the road in 2024 with so many good friends as part of this tour,” Journey said in a statement. “No matter which city you come to this will be an amazing night of music!”
