The Def Leppard World Tour was a tour by British rock band Def Leppard in support of their self-titled album. The tour started with 13 dates in Canada through April and May. The end of May and beginning of June was spent playing 12 dates in Europe before Def Leppard returned to the United States for 48 dates with Styx and Tesla from June to October.

History[edit]

Announcements of the first dates of the tour began in December 2014 when Def Leppard announced a 13 date tour of Canada in the April and May 2015. It will be the band's first tour of Canada since their 2008 Songs from the Sparkle Lounge Tour.[1] The Canadian tour is to be followed by 12 dates and festivals in Europe from May to June. On February 12, 2015 Def Leppard announced 48 dates touring the US with Styx and Tesla. Joe Elliott and other members of the band have stated that the North American Tour would extend to a full world tour to follow through December 2015, with a cruise and second Las Vegas residency planned for early 2016.[2] On March 27, 2015, Def Leppard announced the "Let's Get Rocked in the Still of the Night II" tour of the United Kingdom and Ireland with Whitesnake in December 2015.
