Formed in 1977, English rock band Def Leppard was one of the forerunners of the New Wave of Heavy Mental movement. Their 1992 to present line-up include Joe Elliott (lead vocals), Rick Savage (bassist, backing vocals), Rick Allen (drums, backing vocals), Phil Collen (guitar, backing vocals), and Vivian Campbell (guitar, backing vocals). From the 1980s to the early 90s, the band soared and lorded over rockdom. They achieved the pinnacle of success via the release of their 1987 album 'Hysteria', which spawned seven monster hits: "Love Bites", alongside "Pour Some Sugar on Me", "Hysteria", "Armageddon It", "Animal", "Rocket", and "Women". This was followed by 1992 chart-toppers: "Let's Get Rocked" and "Have You Ever Needed Someone So Bad".
In 1993 and 1995, the singles "Two Steps Behind" and "When Love & Hate Collide", respectively, sent them up further the dizzying heights of commercial success. With cumulative sales of over 100 million records, they anked No. 31 in VH1's "100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock" and ranked No. 70 in "100 Greatest Artists of All Time".
Though Def Leppard headlines this triple bill tour, they truly get by with a little help from their friends. Iconic power rock ballads hitmaker REO Speedwagon and glam rock hero Tesla will share the stage with them.
