Def Leppard teaming up with Tesla & Styx & coming to Orlando!

Def Leppard have announced that they will be once again teaming up with Styx and Tesla for a North American tour early next year. The band has also revealed the second song from their forthcoming album.

The band premiered the song “Dangerous” via Billboard. They had previously released the song “Let’s Go”. Both tracks are featured on their new self-titled album, which is scheduled to be released on November 27th.

I’m digging this tune, it has that old school Def Leppard sorta vibe!  Check it out here

Phil Collen gave Billboard the following background on the new track, “Dangerous is a few years old and was initially titled Dangerous Drug until Joe Elliott suggested shortening the name. I started it a few years ago; I think I had just been working with producer Mutt Lange on something. We copied it exactly. I redid the guitars, just a slightly different guitar sound. We didn’t change anything musically at all.” 

Def Leppard will be supporting the new album with a winter tour which is scheduled to kick off on January 27th at the Greensboro Coliseum in Greensboro, NC.

Like their just completed trek, the new tour will also feature Styx and Tesla, and dates have been announced through February 17th in Allentown, PA at the PPL Center.
