“We shall hit the boards running with a brand-new stage show and set of songs that will celebrate specific parts of our history. We may even have a surprise or two up our sleeves,” Def Leppard singer Joe Elliott said in a press release.
Def Leppard’s catalogue is filled with fist-pumping songs such as “Rock of Ages,” “Photograph,” “Pour Some Sugar on Me” and “Foolin’.”
Journey cranked out hit after hit in the late ‘70s and early ‘80s, including “Wheel in the Sky,” “Any Way You Want It,” “Open Arms,” and the timeless singalong “Don’t Stop Believin’,” which Billboard named the 32nd best karaoke song of all time.
“We are thrilled to be back on the road in 2024 with so many good friends as part of this tour. No matter which city you come to this will be an amazing night of music!” Journey said in the release.
