With combined sales of 100 Million albums worldwide, 65 million from Leppard alone, fans can expect hits like “Photograph,” “Rock Of Ages,” “C’mon C’mon,” “Pour Some Sugar On Me,” “Foolin’,” “Bringin’ On The Heartbreak, “Nine Lives,” and countless others creating an evening of rock ‘n’ roll unlike any other this summer.

The tour, which kicks off on June 23rd in Camden, N.J, promises an unprecedented night for those in attendance. The show will highlight three decades of music from three of rock ‘n’ roll’s greatest bands for a four-hour interactive concert experience that will begin the moment that the doors open. It will feature Bluetooth technology and delivery, text communications prior to and during performances and a host of interactive offerings. This in addition to an arsenal of nearly 60 Top 40 hits including Poison’s “Every Rose Has Its Thorn,” “Unskinny Bop,” “Ride the Wind,” “Somethin’ To Believe In,” and “Nothin’ But A Good Time,” as well as Cheap Trick’s “I Want You To Want Me” and “Surrender.”

“I’m very pleased that we are coming back to North America,” said Def Leppard front man Joe Elliott. “We’re gonna be touring with some new friends and some old friends and can guarantee it will be the Rock Tour of the summer.”

“There is nothing better than an epic summer concert and this tour is a dream come true for rock ‘n’ roll fans. It will be a night of a thousand hits with three hard-charging rock bands on the road together,” said Poison front man and star of VH1’s top-rated “Rock of Love Bus” reality show Bret Michaels.

Def Leppard (Joe Elliott - vocals, Vivian Campbell - guitar, Phil Collen - guitar, Rick “Sav” Savage -bass and Rick Allen - drums) sits at the top of an iconic class of rock ‘n’ roll bands. In fact, they are one of a handful of select groups, including the likes of The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and The Eagles, who have been awarded the R.I.A.A.’s prestigious Diamond Award more than once (Pyromania and Hysteria). The band’s most recent album Songs From The Sparkle Lounge debuted last year at #5 on the Billboard Top 200; earning Def Leppard their highest-charting debut since their 1992 album Adrenalize.

Over the course of their career, Def Leppard has produced a series of classic groundbreaking albums that set the sound for generations of music fans and artists. The group’s spectacular live shows, filled with powerful melodic rock anthems, have become synonymous with their name and are an institution in the touring industry as they continue to sell out arenas worldwide.

Poison, one of rock’s most iconic and enduring bands, has been one of the music industry’s top acts, with multi-platinum album sales and sold out tours since first bursting onto the scene in 1986. Poison’s Bret Michaels, C.C. Deville, Bobby Dall and Rikki Rockett have sold more than 30 million albums worldwide and charted twelve Top 10 hits. Throughout Poison’s career, the band’s members have enjoyed collaborative and solo successes from the stage to screen. Bret Michaels currently stars in the #1 viewed reality show on cable, VH1’s “Rock of Love Bus.”

With more than 5,000 performances, 20 million records sold, 29 movie soundtracks and 40 gold and platinum-recording awards, Cheap Trick may be one of the most covered bands of all time. Since the 70s they’ve been blending elements of pop, punk and even metal in a way that is instantly catchy and recognizable.

Live Nation will produce the tour nationally.

I miss these shows, too. It seems the past few summers there have been big tours as support for bands that I don't like. While I love that it gives Cheap Trick exposure and hopefully introduces them to new fans - I miss going to see them at fairs and local venues. I guess this will be another Trickless year. Sad

See ya at PNC...Looks like only 1 summer show for me again.

If tickets go on sale next Fri. (which I hope they don't for PNC) I may be screwed, as I may still be on stupid jury duty! Arghhh or at work, which would also suck.

Still awaiting the announcement for the Sgt. Pepper Vegas gigs. I need a vacation!!! :Wink: :laugh:

Good Luck With the Summer Tour!!!
