Def Leppard’s influential career includes numerous hit singles and ground-breaking multi-platinum albums, including two of the best selling albums of all time, Pyromania and Hysteria. Most recently, the band released their first live album Mirror Ball: Live & More last summer, which rose to the top 20 on the Billboard Top 200 album chart.
“We had such a good time going out with Poison in 2009 that we thought it only right to do it again,” Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott said in a statement.
With 100 million records sold worldwide and two prestigious Diamond Awards to their credit, Def Leppard – Joe Elliott (vocals), Vivian Campbell (guitar), Phil Collen (guitar), Rick “Sav” Savage (bass) and Rick Allen (drums) – continues to be one of the most important forces in rock music.
“The success of the band’s recent album releases and tours shows that Poison is as potent 26 years after the release of their debut album, Look What The Cat Dragged In, as ever,” promoters said.
Poison’s Bret Michaels (lead vocals, guitar), C.C. Deville (lead guitar, vocals), Bobby Dall (bass) and Rikki Rockett (drums), have sold more than 30 million albums worldwide and charted twelve Top 10 hits.
Michaels has branched out as a solo artist, a successful run as a reality star, businessman, and activist. His most recent solo release, Custom Built shot to number one on the Billboard Top Hard Rock Album chart. A lifelong diabetic with a serious commitment to the cause, Bret donated his $250,000 Celebrity Apprentice prize to diabetes research, earning him the honor of being a spokesperson for the American Diabetes Association.
