DEF LEPPARD announce they will return to the road this spring for a three-month run across North America. The Live Nation-promoted outing will storm through cities across parts of the U.S. and Canada. This new leg of dates follows the group's massive 70-plus-city 2016 tour and is set to kick off on April 8 in Manchester, New Hampshire and wrap on June 25 in Indianapolis, Indiana. Joining DEF LEPPARD on select dates are POISON and TESLA.

DEF LEPPARD frontman Joe Elliott says: "We're thrilled to be able to take this tour to cities we didn't play in 2016. The demand for us to return, or rather extend the tour was phenomenal! There's a great buzz around the band right now and we're loving the fact that we can do this with the latest album being so well received."

The tour marks the first time in over five years that POISON will tour with all original members: Bret Michaels, C.C. DeVille, Bobby Dall and Rikki Rockett.

Michaels says: "I could not be more excited. I know all of us will give one thousand percent on stage and we are looking forward to performing our hits together. I personally could not be more thankful for the three generations of fans and I love the music of DEF LEPPARD and TESLA. This will be an amazing night of rock and roll. Don't wait because god only knows."
