“What a year this is going to be!” Def Leppard frontman Joe Elliott said in news release announcing the tour stops. “First, sold out stadiums (with Motley Crue), then we get to go on tour with the mighty ZZ Top! Having been an admirer of the band for a lifetime it’s gonna be a real pleasure to finally do some shows together. ... Maybe some of us will get to go for a spin with Billy (Gibbons) in one of those fancy cars.”

Said Gibbons: “Joe Elliott is always welcome to ride ‘shotgun’ with us and we won’t even ask him to pay for the gas.”

Gibbons said ZZ Top has been fans of Def Leppard “since forever” and said his band is excited about hitting the road with Def Leppard.

“We’ve been at this for 50 years now and the forthcoming run with them underscores that the good times are really just beginning,” he said.
