Def Leppard and Journey Concert News and Tickets

Check out Def Leppard & Journey Tickets here.

Def Leppard and Journey, who are in the midst of a co-headlining summer tour, will remain linked for a newly announced batch of fall shows.

After wrapping up the in-progress summer run in late September, the fellow rock vets will return to the stage for about a dozen October dates that are booked into arenas and amphitheaters throughout the US. Details are included below.

Def Leppard continues to back its May release, “Yeah,” a covers album that features the band’s takes on works by The Kinks, Badfinger, T. Rex, David Bowie, Sweet, Roxy Music, Mott the Hoople, Free, The Faces and Thin Lizzy, among others. The set features the group’s rendition of David Essex’s “Rock On,” the music video for which recently made its way into the Top 10 on VH1’s “Top 20 Countdown.”

“Yeah” follows last year’s “Def Leppard–Rock of Ages: The Definitive Collection,” a two-disc best-of set. Later this year, the band plans to issue “Hysteria: Deluxe Edition,” a souped-up version of its multi-platinum 1988 album, “Hysteria.” The disc is scheduled to surface in “late 2006,” according to the group’s website.

Journey continues to back last year’s “Generations,” its 13th studio album. Produced by Kevin Elson–who also produced Journey’s multi-platinum “Escape,” “Departure” and “Frontiers” albums, as well the double-platinum live set “Captured”–“Generations” is the band’s first collection of all-new material since its 2002, four-song EP, “Red 13.”

Journey recently replaced lead singer Steve Augieri with vocalist Jeff Scott Soto, citing a vocal ailment Augieri is battling.

Augieri had fronted the band since the late ’90s, at which time he took over for original lead singer Steve Perry, who sang on the band’s best-known songs, including hits such as “Don’t Stop Believin’,” “Wheel in the Sky,” “Any Way You Want It” and “Open Arms.”

Soto, who got his start fronting guitarist Yngwie Malmsteen’s band in the mid-’80s, previously worked with Journey guitarist Neal Schon in a side project dubbed Soul SirkUS. He has spent a number of years helming the group Talisman, and has also released several solo albums.

Def Leppard and Journey are both members of an exclusive list of artists who have seen at least one of their albums achieve Diamond certification by the Recording Industry Association of America, signifying sales of 10 million copies. Leppard accomplished that feat with 1983’s “Pyromania” and its follow-up, “Hysteria,” while Journey scored the award for its 1988 best-of set, “Journey: Greatest Hits.

    Do not give out your exact address until you feel comfortable with who
    you’re dealing with. They usually say, “if you can’t use it, put in in your next yard sale”, so I know its OK to resell items after I am done with them. Do the research, ask as many questions as necessary to make sure you know who, what, when and where.
