The Def Leppard Slang Tour was a worldwide concert tour by English hard rock band Def Leppard in support of their album Slang. It was the first Def Leppard tour since the early 1980s where the band used an end stage rather than the centre stage. The album itself was a radical departure from the band's signature sound.
