The Songs From The Sparkle Lounge World Tour was a world tour by British Rock band Def Leppard in support of their latest album, Songs From The Sparkle Lounge. It marks the first time the band had travelled to Japan since 2002's X Tour. Styx and REO Speedwagon were the opening acts of the tour; however, some shows had Joan Jett, Billy Idol and Children Of Bodom instead of Styx and REO Speedwagon. In February 2009, the 2009 leg of the tour was announced with Poison and Cheap Trick as the opening acts.
