Def Leppard Returning to Bozeman with Poison, Tesla
Def Leppard is returning to Bozeman this spring for the band's 2017 North American Tour with Poison and Tesla.
Def Leppard, Poison and Tesla will perform at the Brick Breeden Fieldhouse on Wednesday, May 31. Tickets go on sale Friday, Jan. 20 at 10 a.m. at LiveNation.com.
The band announced its 2017 spring tour plans on its website. The 2017 tour follows the 70-plus city 2016 tour, kicking off on April 8 in Manchester, NH.
“We’re thrilled to be able to take this tour to cities we didn’t play in 2016. The demand for us to return, or rather extend the tour was phenomenal! There’s a great buzz around the band right now and we’re loving the fact that we can do this with the latest album being so well received," Joe Elliott said in a statement on the website.
The tour marks the first time in over five years that Poison will tour with all original members, including Bret Michaels, CC DeVille, Bobby Dall, and Rikki Rockett. Poison is set to perform some of its greatest hits, including “Nothin’ but a Good Time,” “Every Rose Has Its Thorn,” “Talk Dirty to Me,” “Unskinny Bop,” and “Something to Believe In.”
In conjunction with the announcement of their North American tour, Def Leppard also premiered the live video for “Animal." Check it out HERE.
