During the second half of June, right after the first leg of the Rock & Roll Header Tour with Bryan Adams, Def Leppard will play another 12 shows. Two of these were already announced last week (the Music Midtown and CityStages festivals), and now we can confirm that the band will play another 10 headline shows:

JUN 14 Tampa, FL St. Pete Times Forum
JUN 15 Kissimmee, FL Silver Spurs Arena
JUN 17 Jacksonville, FL Jacksonville Arena
JUN 20 Madison, WI Alliant Energy Ctr. Mem. Col.
JUN 21 Green Bay, WI Resch Center
JUN 23 Pittsburgh, PA Chevrolet Amphitheatre
JUN 24 Wilkes-Barre, PA Wachovia Arena
JUN 25 Portland, ME Cumberland County Civic Ctr.
JUN 27 Uncasville, CT Mohegan Sun Arena
JUN 28 Manchester, NH Verizon Wireless Arena

On these dates, Def Leppard will be supported by none other than their friends of TESLA. This brings back memories of the 1987/1988 “HYSTERIA” tour, when the band from Sacramento, CA, on the verge of breaking through was also supporting Def Leppard. Tesla will not be playing at the June 17 show, but instead MONTROSE will open.
