Children of the '80s unite! British hard rockers Def Leppard announced that they'll be hitting the road along with Poison and Lita Ford this summer, including a June 22 date at Irvine's Verizon Wireless Ampitheatre. The band that's best known for hit singles like “Photograph,” “Pour Some Sugar On Me,” and “Foolin'” is back less than a year after they played the same venue. Last year, the Sheffield natives released their first live LP, Mirror Ball: Live & More, which breached the top 20 of Billboard's Top 200 album chart, proving that the band is still going strong.
It maybe hard to believe, but the band has been around for over 30 years and fortunately for fans, they still bring the same energy they had as upstarts. Check the band's website for ticket info and other tour dates, in case seeing them once isn't enough.
