The 20/20 Vision tour kicks off September 21st at Times Union Center in Albany, New York and runs through October 18th in Spokane, Washington.

Def Leppard singer Joe Elliott says, “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 [Gibbons] in one of those fancy cars.”

And Gibbons adds, “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. [And, by the way], Joe Elliott is always welcome to ride ‘shotgun’ with us and we won’t even ask him to pay for the gas.”
