Def Leppard & Whitesnake with special guests Black Star Riders

EVENT INFORMATION

  • Date: Wednesday 9th December 2015
  • Doors Open: 6.45pm
  • Pricing: £45.00

Rock icons Def Leppard and Whitesnake today announce a joint headline UK & Irish arena tour with support from Black Star Riders arriving into the Metro Radio Arena, Newcastle on Wednesday 9th December 2015.

Speaking about the co-headline tour, Def Leppard frontman Joe Elliott said: "I am very excited to be working with Whitesnake again; we had such a wonderful time when we did it back in 2008. It’s a great experience for rock fans to be able to see two great live bands on the same stage on the same night."

Formed in Sheffield, Def Leppard have been hailed as the UK's greatest-ever arena rock band. They have sold over 100 million albums worldwide in a career that spans three decades and have a highly anticipated new self-titled studio album coming in late 2015. Def Leppard’s influential career includes countless hit singles and ground-breaking multi-platinum albums – including two of the best-selling records of all time, “Pyromania” and “Hysteria”, both of which have been given the elusive Diamond Award. These two albums alone contain 10 hit singles including the classic Leppard tracks "Rock of Ages,” “Animal," "Pour Some Sugar On Me” and “Foolin'.” Def Leppard – Joe Elliott (vocals), Vivian Campbell (guitar), Phil Collen (guitar), Rick "Sav" Savage (bass) and Rick Allen (drums) – continue to be one of the most important forces in rock music. The group’s spectacular live shows, filled with powerful melodic rock anthems, continue to sell out venues worldwide. Def Leppard's epic live shows and arsenal of hits have become synonymous with their name, leading the Rock Legends to be heralded as an institution in both the music and touring industry.

"Ohh, have you got trouble…Brother Joe & The Lepps?…DC & The Snakes?... Them Black Star Riders?…On the same night???…I can’t wait!!...SEE YOU THERE!!!” said Whitesnake’s David Coverdale on the forthcoming tour.

Tickets costing £45.00 are available online, from the booking hotline number 0844 493 6666 or in person from the Metro Radio Arena Box Office.
