Def Leppard and Journey to Co-Headline 2024 Tour: See the Entire Schedule

Tease that hair up and slip on a muscle tee. Rock icons, Def Leppard and Journey, just revealed their plans for a co-headlining stadium tour. In the summer of 2024, the beloved ’80s favorites who previously embarked on a joint tour in 2018 will once again hit the road across North America. This time, they’re creating an unforgettable experience for classic rock fans with iconic acts like Cheap Trick, Heart, and Steve Miller Band joining them on select dates.

The 23-city tour is set to kick off on July 6 in St. Louis, Missouri, and will span through to Sept. 8, concluding in Denver, Colorado. Along the journey, these two esteemed Rock and Hall of Fame inductees will grace stadiums in prominent cities such as Chicago, Nashville, Boston, Toronto, New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and more.

Cheap Trick will kick off and close out the tour, while the majority of shows will be performed by the Steve Miller Band. Additionally, Heart will join them for three dates. Def Leppard shared news of the tour and all of the dates on Instagram.

Def Leppard and Journey Both Just Finished Tours This Year

The news comes after Def Leppard played another throwback tour in 2023 with 80s headbangers Mötley Crüe. The band, with frontman Joe Elliott, drummer Rick Allen, guitarist Vivian Campbell, guitarist Phil Collen, and bassist Rick Savage, is gearing up to perform their beloved fan-favorite hits. This comes after the successful release of their 12th studio album, titled “Diamond Star Halos,” in 2022.

Meanwhile, Journey will unite with Def Leppard after concluding their Freedom Tour, which commemorates their 50th anniversary as a band and the recent release of their album Freedom in 2022.
