Def Leppard and ZZ Top are joining forces this fall on the road for a batch of performances in the United States.

The 16-date tour kicks off September 21 in Albany, N.Y. and wraps October 18 in Spokane, Wa. In a statement on the tour, Def Leppard frontman Joe Elliott said, “What a year this is going to be! First, sold out stadiums, then we get to go on tour with the mighty ZZ Top! Having been an admirer of the band for a lifetime it’s gonna be a real pleasure to finally do some shows together…maybe some of us will get to go for a spin with Billy in one of those fancy cars…”

ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons added, “We’re excited about hitting the road with Def Leppard this fall; we’ve been fans of theirs since forever. We’ve been at this for 50 years now and the forthcoming run with them underscores that the good times are really just beginning. Joe Elliott is always welcome to ride ‘shotgun’ with us and we won’t even ask him to pay for the gas.”

Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, February 21 at 10 AM local time at
