DEF LEPPARD Singer Says Touring With BRYAN ADAMS Makes Sense

Billboard.com is reporting that tickets for the DEF LEPPARD/BRYAN ADAMS' 26-date co-headlining tour of minor league ballparks have a base price of $45.

At each LEPPARD/ADAMS stop, a stage will be built on the field, and fans can sit in the outfield or in the stands. "Everybody wants to play Madison Square Garden, but there's a point when you want to do something that's a little different," DEF LEPPARD lead singer Joe Elliott offers. The band's two-disc set "Rock of Ages: The Definitive Collection" (Mercury/UME) will be released May 17.

Elliott says that although DEF LEPPARD has generally toured alone, pairing with ADAMS makes sense and is even a way to draw in new fans. "A BON JOVI or a BRYAN ADAMS is what people would perceive is a right fit for us," he says. "We're comfortable accepting the way people think."
