Def Leppard Return on June 27 with Poison & Lita Ford

Def Leppard, Great Britain's premiere arena rock band, have announced that they will make their triumphant return to the US for a 2012 summer tour including a June 27 stop at Sprint Center in Kansas City, Mo. Joining Def Leppard for this highly anticipated summer tour are Poison and Lita Ford. Leppard's influential career includes numerous hit singles and ground-breaking multi-platinum albums -- including two of the best-selling albums of all time, Pyromania and Hysteria. The anthemic rock megastars have earned their stripes as one of the most enduring and successful touring acts in history.

“We had such a good time going out with Poison in 2009 that we thought it only right to do it again!” says singer Joe Elliott.

With more than 65 million albums sold worldwide and two prestigious Diamond Awards to their credit, Def Leppard--Joe Elliott (vocals), Vivian Campbell (guitar), Phil Collen (guitar), Rick "Sav" Savage (bass) and Rick Allen (drums)-continues to be one of the most important forces in rock music. Over the course of their career, the band has produced a series of classic groundbreaking albums that set the bar for generations of music fans and artists alike. The group's spectacular live shows, filled with powerful melodic rock anthems, have become synonymous with their name. The band's colossal live performances have become must-see events and have made them an institution in the music and touring industry as they continue to sell out arenas worldwide.

Ticket prices and availability for the June 27 show at Sprint Center will be announced shortly. For more information, visit
