Said Joe Elliott, "This tour is going to be a blast! We've toured together before and it was massive. This time it's going to be even bigger and better!"

Jonathan Cain added, "We are all anxious to share our sound with the world again and, along with Def Leppard, we are part of a world-class package to the rock stage that spans decades and represents a multi-platinum legacy."
