WHITESNAKE, DEF LEPPARD To Play Albania In July

WHITESNAKE and DEF LEPPARD will team up for a July 3 concert at Qemal Stafa Stadium in Tirana, Albania.

DEF LEPPARD and WHITESNAKE will embark on a UK co-headlining tour in June.

DEF LEPPARD's new studio album, "Songs From The Sparkle Lounge", is scheduled for release on April 29 via Bludgeon Riffola/Island/UMe.

The 11-track "Songs From The Sparkle Lounge" is DEF LEPPARD's first album of brand new material since 2002's "X" and begins yet another remarkable new chapter in the band's 30-year recording career. Recorded last year during month-long stints at lead singer Joe Elliott's Dublin studio, the album's title refers to a backstage area called The Sparkle Lounge on DEF LEPPARD's 2006 tour where the band would go to write songs.

WHITESNAKE will release its new studio LP, "Good To Be Bad", on April 22 via SPV.

"The album contains all the elements that I enjoy about WHITESNAKE," Coverdale told Billboard.com. "The responses I've been getting are that the album is a heady cocktail that embraces the whole history of WHITESNAKE within one album. Which was not planned, but fortunately, I'll drink two of those cocktails!"
