There are two big items on the Def Leppard news docket this morning, but let’s unpack the big tour news first.

While it was one of the worst kept secrets as of late, Def Leppard and Journey have made it official with the unveiling of their 58-date tour hitting up arenas and some baseball stadiums.

The two powerhouse bands will rock Wells Fargo Center on June 11.  Tickets go on sale February 3 via wellsfargocenterphilly.com .

Info on pre-sales and VIP Packages will be availabe soon via Per Def Leppard’s official website.

The other piece of big news (and it’s about time) is that Def Leppard’s ENTIRE catalog is now available for download and streaming on all the major services, including Apple Music/iTunes, Spotify, Google Play, Amazon Music and more.

In a statement, Joe Elliott said of the streaming news, “It is with a mixture of relief & euphoria that we now see our entire catalog finally getting a digital release. Having embraced every other format with open arms, especially & more recently the reemergence of vinyl, we’re now going to be available to everyone everywhere and honestly, it’s as exciting as the original releases were.”

Exciting, indeed!  Now, excuse me while I binge their entire catalog at will!
