May 21, 2008
Tonight, Def Leppard will kick off the European leg of their 2008 “SPARKLE LOUNGE” tour! Starting at the Classic Rock Festival in Sandnes, Norway, the band will be playing in almost 20 European countries (including some where they have never been before) between tonight and two months from now.
For the third leg of the tour (North America), all support acts/guests have now been finalized. During the 16-date leg, there will be no less than 5 acts opening for Def Leppard: Joan Jett and the Blackhearts (July 30 – Aug 3), Billy Idol (Aug 6-15 and Aug 17-21), Everclear (Aug 16) and Styx/REO Speedwagon (Aug 23). The final date of this leg is billed as “an evening with Def Leppard”.
The guys are happy to be back on stage and look forward to play your favorite songs -some old, some new- to you all!
