English rockers Def Leppard, recent winners of Classic Rock Magazine’s ‘Album of the Year’, are coming to Rogers Arena this summer. Expect hair for days and a healthy dose of nostalgia.

Active since 1977, the classic rock band has some iconic rock anthems under its belt, such as ‘Pour Some Sugar on Me.’ Def Leppard are joined by the equally iconic Poison, best known for ‘Every Rose Has Its Thorn,’ and Tesla from California.

Def Leppard frontman Joe Elliott is excited for the tour, saying: “There’s a great buzz around the band right now and we’re loving the fact that we can do this with the latest album being so well received.”

The same goes for his counterpart in Poison, Bret Michaels, who said: “I could not be more excited. I know all of us will give one thousand percent on stage and we are looking forward to performing our hits together. I personally could not be more thankful for the three generations of fans and I love the music of Def Leppard and Tesla. This will be an amazing night of rock and roll. Don’t wait because god only knows.”
