30 Mar 2015
Rock heroes, Def Leppard and Whitesnake will embark on a co-headline tour of the UK and Ireland this December.
The British bands have teamed up to bring fans an early Christmas present with a 10-date December tour of the country that will visit the UK and Ireland’s biggest arenas. The two groups will be supported by Black Star Riders.
The 2015 tour kicks off at Dublin’s 3Arena on 6 December and will come to an end at Def Leppard’s original starting point in Sheffield on 19 December. They will play a headline show at the Steel City’s Motorpoint Arena.
Joe Elliot, Def Leppard’s frontman, said of the tour, “I am very excited to be working with Whitesnake again; we had such a wonderful time when we did it back in 2008.
“It’s a great experience for rock fans to be able to see two great live bands on the same stage on the same night."
Def Leppard and Whitesnake’s tour will continue to Belfast, Newcastle, Glasgow, Birmingham, Nottingham, Manchester and Cardiff. The two groups will also headline London’s SSE Wembley Arena on 18 December.
Individually the bands have enjoyed worldwide hits, multi-platinum record sales, a number of sell-out world tours and have made British rock history time and time again.
Def Leppard’s back catalogue includes some of the biggest-selling albums of all time, Pyromania and Hysteria, along with singles Rock of Ages, Animal and Pour Some Sugar on Me. While Whitesnake, who were formed by Deep Purple’s David Coverdale, have released the huge hits Here I Go Again and Is This Love.
