Def Leppard, Whitesnake and Black Star Riders team up for UK tour

Def Leppard, Whitesnake and Black Star Riders have confirmed that they will team up for a UK tour later this year.

The three bands will play 10 arena dates in the UK and Ireland in December.

Tickets for the shows will go on sale on the 1st of April via Live Nation.

Def Leppard are likely to have released their new self-titled album by then, with frontman Joe Elliot saying recently of the new material: “It sounds like Def Leppard, but it sounds like Def Leppard stretching their wings a little bit.”

Whitesnake’s David Coverdale recently confirmed details of their new album. Titled The Purple Album, it features covers of songs that Coverdale performed during his time fronting Deep Purple and is scheduled for release on the 18th of May.

Black Star Riders released their second album, The Killer Instinct, last month, an album that Def Leppard’s Joe Elliot was set to produce but had to pull out of owing to increasing commitments with his own band.

The three bands will play:

Dec 06th: Dublin 3 Arena
Dec 07th: Belfast Odyssey Arena
Dec 09th: Newcastle Metro Radio Arena
Dec 10th: Glasgow SSE Hydro
Dec 12th: Birmingham Genting Arena
Dec 13th: Nottingham Capital FM Arena
Dec 15th: Manchester Arena
Dec 16th: Cardiff Motorpoint Arena
Dec 18th: Wembley SSE Arena
Dec 19th: Sheffield Motorpoint Arena
