Following on the heels of their massively successful 2006 concert tour, DEF LEPPARD recently announced a mega summer concert tour that is set to hit all corners of the United States, as well as Canada. This year's outing will include 50 dates, kicking off on June 27 in Cincinnati and culminating on September 30 in Edmonton. STYX and FOREIGNER are scheduled to appear on select dates.

2006 was a watershed year for DEF LEPPARD with the group's summer concert tour becoming a must-see phenomenon. It was extended three times due to overwhelming demand for tickets from concert-goers and quickly became one of the year's most successful live music events. 2006 also included a gold record for "Rock Of Ages: The Definitive Collection", marking the group's 10th album certification, as well as two critically acclaim album releases; an exclusive limited edition version of the group's classic "Hysteria" album and "Yeah!", a tribute to the band's musical heroes, that received raves from Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone and USA Today and featured the group's now definitive cover of "Rock On".
