With a May launch from Connecticut and trekking all the way down to LA in October, classic rock giants Journey and Def Leppard are co-headlining a tour with a stop at the AT&T Center on Friday.
“The fact that we’re touring with Journey, and it’s putting us into huge arenas like Madison Square Garden and stadiums, that is very special for us,” Def Leppard frontman Joe Elliott told Rolling Stone
in a recent interview. “It’s two iconic bands touring together. It makes it more of an event when the bill is all bands that people have heard of. We went out with a really good band called Tripping Daisy in 1996, but nobody cared. But when you have people like Cheap Trick, Poison, Heart or Journey, it makes for a better night for the people in the crowd. They come in and they know what they’re going to get.”
$49.50-$201.50, Fri Aug 31, 7pm, AT&T Center, One AT&T Center Pkwy, attcenter.com.
