Journey And Def Leppard: Two Iconic Bands, One Soundgasm At Fenway Park
We could call this an 80s child's dream come true -- Journey and Def Leppard on the road together. However, both Journey and Def Leppard have managed to cross the generational lines to reach audiences of all ages. And, both epic giants have influenced younger musicians with their respective sounds.
Lucky for us, their 58-city North American tour includes one show at Fenway Park in Boston on Saturday, August 11th. Tickets go on sale on Saturday, February 3rd at 10 a.m.
Here are some quotes from the legendary rockers, from the press release that was sent to The Shark:
Neal Schon said, “These co-headlining Journey/Def Leppard dates will be epic classic rock shows. So many hits. It will be great to see you all, friends!”
Said Joe Elliott, “This tour is going to be a blast! We’ve toured together before and it was massive. This time it’s going to be even bigger and better!”
Jonathan Cain added, “We are all anxious to share our sound with the world again and, along with Def Leppard, we are part of a world-class package to the rock stage that spans decades and represents a multi-platinum legacy.”
Added Rick Savage of Def Leppard, "12 years ago we embarked on a US tour with Journey and it was an absolute blast. Looking forward to hooking up again. Believe me, this will be even more spectacular."
The only other New England date on their calendar is Monday, May 21st at the XL Center in Hartford, Connecticut. That's unless more shows are added. We'll be the first to let you know if that happens.
