Def Leppard Coming to AXS TV; On Tour With Poison, Tesla

Share This:

Def Leppard’s three-month North America tour began April 8 and wraps on June 25 in Indianapolis, IN. Joining Def Leppard on select dates are Poison and Tesla. (See full tour below.)

Def Leppard… And There Will Be a Next Time: Live From Detroit will premiere on AXS TV next Sunday, April 23, at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT.

Filmed at the DTE Energy Music Theatre, Def Leppard… And There Will Be a Next Time: Live From Detroit boasts high-octane stage effects, as the British classic rock legends perform a blend of signature hits and modern favorites. Highlights include “Pour Some Sugar On Me,” “Photograph,” “Let’s Get Rocked,” “Rock Of Ages,” “Animal,” “Foolin’,” “Let’s Go” and more. The recently released concert experience hit #1 in North America on the DVD sales charts.

Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott says: “We’re thrilled to be able to take this tour to cities we didn’t play in 2016. The demand for us to return, or rather extend the tour was phenomenal! There’s a great buzz around the band right now and we’re loving the fact that we can do this with the latest album being so well received.”

Guitarist Phil Collen adds: “Our last full concert DVD, excluding Viva! Hysteria, was 1987’s in the round in your face which was shot on video. We felt an updated version was way overdue so here it is, the brand new Def Leppard concert experience!”

With two prestigious Diamond Awards to their credit, Def Leppard—Elliott, Collen, Vivian Campbell, Rick “Sav” Savage and Rick Allen—have delivered some of the most memorable classic rock anthems of all time.

The tour also marks the first time in over five years that Poison are touring with all original members: Bret Michaels, CC DeVille, Bobby Dall and Rikki Rockett. Poison has sold over 40 million records and will perform some of its greatest hits including “Nothin’ but a Good Time,” “Every Rose has its Thorn,” “Talk Dirty to Me,” “Unskinny Bop” and “Something to Believe In.”

Bret Michaels says, “I could not be more excited. I know all of us will give one thousand percent on stage and we are looking forward to performing our hits together. I personally could not be more thankful for the three generations of fans and I love the music of Def Leppard and Tesla. This will be an amazing night of rock and roll.”
