Def Leppard, Poison and Tesla Headed to White River — Tickets On Sale This Week
We’re telling you now so you’ll have plenty of time to start growing your hair back out again: Def Leppard — along with Poison and Tesla — are coming to Auburn’s White River Amphitheatre for a June 9 show.
Tickets go up at 10 a.m. this Friday (Jan. 20) on LiveNation.com.
The Auburn stop is included in a three-month North American tour that kicks off April 8 in Manchester, N.H., according to an announcement from Live Nation.
The tour comes on the heels of Def Leppard winning the fan-chosen Classic Rock Magazine Album of the Year award, and just as the band releases a live video for “Animal”
from their new concert DVD, “And There Will Be A Next Time – Live From Detroit.”
Current members Joe Elliott, Phil Collen, Vivian Campbell, Rick “Sav” Savage and Rick Allen have been busy in recent years, winning two Diamond Awards and completing a self-titled album in 2015. The album featured the singles “Dangerous” and “Let’s Go,” which hit No. 1 on the Billboard Top Rock Albums chart.
“There’s a great buzz around the band right now,” frontman Elliott says, “and we’re loving the fact that we can do this with the latest album being so well received.”
Poison, meantime, is touring with all of its original members for the first time in more than five years — Bret Michaels, CC DeVille, Bobby Dall and Rikki Rockett. The band, which has sold more than 40 million records, is rolling out some of its greatest hits on this tour, including “Nothin’ but a Good Time,” “Every Rose Has Its Thorn,” “Talk Dirty to Me,” “Unskinny Bop” and “Something to Believe In.”
“This will be an amazing night of rock and roll,” Michaels says.
