During a recent interview with Chile’s Radio Futuro, DEF LEPPARD guitarist Phil Collen was asked if fans can expect to see the band touring South America in support of their latest record, Diamond Star Halos.
He answered: “Definitely. Obviously, this year we’re touring the States with MÖTLEY CRÜE, POISON and Joan Jett. And that starts in a couple of [weeks]… But the tour is gonna be three years — at least three years — for the album. [We’re doing] America this [year]. Definitely next summer is gonna be Europe. And then South America, Australia [and] Japan — next year, hopefully at some point, we’ll be playing all of those markets.”
On whether if the same package of bands that touring U.S. will be touring through other countries, Phil said: “That’s what they’re talking about. Obviously, I can say, ‘Yeah, let’s do that,’ but we’ve gotta ask them as well. But I think MÖTLEY CRÜE have signed up. So hopefully that’s all gonna come, and Joan Jett and POISON. That would be amazing.”
MÖTLEY CRÜE‘s co-headlining “The Stadium Tour” with DEF LEPPARD will finally kick off on June 16 in Atlanta, GA. Full list of dates and available tickets can be found at this location.
