Today I had the honor to speak with Def Leppard guitar genius Phil Collen. Def Leppard is still one of the biggest touring rock bands around, and this summer they are teaming up with Poison and Tesla for a rockin' tour.

I had a change to talk with Phil from Def Leppard today about the tour, new projects, the music industry in 2017, and more.

Lead singer Joe Elliott of Def Leppard was quoted and saying about this upcoming tour:

We're thrilled to be able to take this tour to cities we didn't play in 2016. The demand for us to return, or rather extend the tour was phenomenal! 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.

Def Leppard, Poison and Tesla will play Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre  in Chicago on June 24th. For a complete list of tour dates, go to livenationentertainment.com
