The classic rock megastars, Journey and Def Leppard, are set to turn up the heat this summer, cooking up a storm across the stadiums of North America. The two powerhouse bands are joining forces for a mammoth 23-city tour that's sure to stir up some nostalgia with a few new twists to boot, as reported by KSAT.
San Antonio, get ready. These rock legends are headed your way with their "The Summer Stadium Tour 2024," and it's already shaping up to be a blisteringly hot season. According to KSAT, Journey and Def Leppard will make the Alamodome their stage on August 16. Fans eager to snag tickets early can register now for the presale, which starts promptly at 10 a.m. on December 12, with general public tickets becoming available a few days later on Friday, December 15. The tour is also making stops in Arlington on August 12, 2024, and Houston on August 14, 2024, so take your pick and get those lighters ready for some epic encores.
It's not just about past hits with these bands—although, let's be honest, who isn't waiting to belt out "Don't Stop Believin'" or "Pour Some Sugar on Me" at the top of their lungs? USA Today teases that beyond their treasure trove of classics, the bands have suggested that fans might get treated to "a surprise or two up our sleeves," as Def Leppard's Joe Elliott puts it. And if you need more of a reason to show up besides these titans of rock, they're not coming alone. The Steve Miller Band, Heart, and Cheap Trick are slated to join in on the fun in varying cities.
This tour is going to be a marathon of lights, guitar solos, and anthemic choruses, starting off in St. Louis on July 6, 2024, and wrapping up in Denver on September 8, 2024. Check out the full list of dates and plan your summer accordingly. Tickets for these time-traveling rock concerts are expected to sell faster than a one-way trip to nostalgia, so mark your calendars; the presale's coming, and you won't want to miss the show that promises to reverberate through the stadiums with the indefatigable spirit of the 80s.
