PHOENIX — It’s a good day for Phoenix-area fans of ’80s rock. A star-studded lineup of four music icons will bring their tour to Glendale next year.

Def Leppard, Motley Crue, Poison, and Joan Jett and the Blackhearts will play State Farm Stadium on July 25.

Presales begin Monday, while tickets will be available to the general public on Dec. 13 at 10 a.m.

The tour begins July 7 in Miami, Florida, and will make its last stop Sept. 5 in Inglewood, California.

Two of the bands in the lineup have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: Def Leppard in 2019 and Joan Jett and the Blackhearts in 2015.

Joan Jett played in Phoenix earlier this year, while Def Leppard made a visit with Journey last year.

Motley Crue hasn’t visited the Valley since its 2015 goodbye tour, and Poison hasn’t been in the area since 2011.

According to a press release, the artists “will bring their electrifying stage shows while promising to perform their stadium-sized anthems.”

We want to hear from you.
