Rock icons Def Leppard and Whitesnake have announced a joint headline UK and Irish arena tour with support from Black Star Riders.
And they will play Nottingham’s Capital FM Arena on 13th December, with a date at Sheffield’s Motorpoint Arena a few days later on 19th December.
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
Formed in Sheffield, Def Leppard have been hailed as one of UK’s greatest-ever rock bands.
They have sold over 100 million albums worldwide in a career that spans three decades and includes recording two of the best-selling records of all time – Pyromania and Hysteria.
Meanwhile, Whitesnake also carry a reputation as one of the world’s leading rockbands.
Founded by former Deep Purple singer David Coverdale, the band have recorded multi-platinum albums and multiple top-10 hits worldwide, including two number ones with Is This Love and Here I Go Again.
Support act Black Star Riders are the latest incarnation of 70s legends Thin Lizzy and released their second album, The Killer Instinct, this year.
Speaking about the co-headline tour, Def Leppard frontman Joe Elliott said: “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.”
