DEF LEPPARD And BRYAN ADAMS To Embark On 26-Date 'Rock 'N Roll Double-Header Tour'

DEF LEPPARD and BRYAN ADAMS will co-headline headline the Rock 'N Roll Double-Header Tour this summer, according to a press release. Two of the most popular rock acts to ever take the stage, will team up for the first time and perform at 26 minor league baseball stadiums. BRYAN ADAMS and DEF LEPPARD, combined, have sold more than 100,000,000 albums worldwide. Each made their album debut in 1980 — and 25 years later they are still hitting home runs as each releases a new album in 2005.

Only five rock groups can claim two original albums selling 10,000,000+ copies each in the U.S.: THE BEATLES, LED ZEPPELIN, PINK FLOYD, VAN HALEN and DEF LEPPARD. The British band's blockbuster "Pyromania" hit #2 and 10 times platinum; "Hysteria" soared even higher — #1 and 13 times platinum. Still swinging for the fences, this coming May they'll release "Rock of Ages: The Definitive Collection", the band's biggest-ever "best of" album and the first two-CD set in the group's phenomenal career.
