“Def Leppard and Journey will be reuniting and hitting the road together for the Summer Stadium Tour with Steve Miller, Cheap Trick and Heart on select shows, which makes for an amazing night of music,” Def Leppard frontman Joe Elliot said. “Having just completed a sensational 18-month run promoting our Diamond Star Halos album, 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…so, wanna join us?! See you in the summer!”

“We are thrilled to be back on the road in 2024 with so many good friends as part of this tour,” Journey added. “No matter which city you come to this will be an amazing night of music!”

Def Leppard released a new album, Drastic Symphonies, on May 19. The record paired the band with London’s iconic The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. It features some of Def Leppard’s greatest songs reimagined, as well as a few rare gems. The record was released on CD, 2-LP black vinyl, limited 2-LP colored vinyl, limited -LP picture disc, CD/Blu-Ray (Atmos) and digitally. The vinyl and Atmos versions will also feature an exclusive bonus track, “Have You Ever Needed Someone So Bad.”

In July of 2022, Journey released Freedom (BMG/Frontiers) – their first studio album in over a decade. The follow-up to 2011’s Eclipse, it marks the longest gap between albums in the band’s career. The all-new Freedom is also the band’s most hefty release, with 15 songs that clock in over an hour. Produced by guitarist Neal Shon and keyboardist Jonathan Cain, alongside Narada Michael Walden (Elton John, Santana, Steve Winwood). Anchored by the lead single, “The Way We Used to Be,” the album produced four more singles and landed at No. 17 on Billboard’s Top Rock Albums chart.

In October, fans at Ann Wilson’s Santa Rosa, California show were treated to a monumental surprise. For the show’s encore, Ann brought out a very special guest – none other than her sister and fellow Heart member, Nancy Wilson. The duo had not shared a stage together since 2019, but reunited for a raucous performance of the band’s classic 1977 hit, “Barracuda.” Check out fan-filmed footage of the performance HERE.

“Ladies and gentlemen, we have an answer to a question with us tonight,” Ann said to the crowd. “A very, very good friend of mine – more than a friend. Let’s bring her out. Come on.”

On October 24, Heart confirmed a special performance on New Year’s Eve [December 31] at Climate Pledge Arena in their hometown of Seattle, Washington along with very special guests Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Evening.
