"We are really amazed by how well the tour has been received," said Def Leppard front man Joe Elliott. "Our fans have been absolutely fantastic. There's really no greater compliment than to be asked to keep on doing it so that's what we're going to do."

The tour's second leg will kick off in Reno, Nev. and highlights three decades of music from one of rock 'n' roll's greatest bands. With combined sales of 80 million albums worldwide, 65 million from Leppard alone, fans will be treated to hits like "Photograph," "Rock Of Ages," "C'mon C'mon," "Pour Some Sugar On Me," "Foolin'," "Bringin' On The Heartbreak," "Nine Lives," as well as Cheap Trick classics "I Want You To Want Me" and "Surrender."

Def Leppard (Joe Elliott/vocals, Vivian Campbell/guitar, Phil Collen/guitar, Rick "Sav" Savage/bass and Rick Allen/drums) sits at the top of an iconic class of rock 'n' roll bands. In fact, they are one of a handful of select groups, including the likes of The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and The Eagles, who have been awarded the Recording Industry of America Association's prestigious Diamond Award more than once (Pyromania and Hysteria). The band's most recent album Songs From The Sparkle Lounge debuted last year at no.5 on the Billboard Top 200. Over the course of their career, Def Leppard has produced a series of classic groundbreaking albums that set the sound for generations of music fans and artists. The group's spectacular live shows, filled with powerful melodic rock anthems, have become synonymous with their name and are an institution in the touring industry as they continue to sell out arenas worldwide.

With more than 5,000 performances, 20 million records sold, 29 movie soundtracks and 40 gold and platinum-recording awards, Cheap Trick may be one of the most covered bands of all time. Since the 1970's they've been blending elements of pop, punk and metal in a way that is instantly recognizable.

Cheap Trick's acclaimed new album, The Latest, continues their reign as power-pop progenitors as they celebrate their 35th anniversary. Since forming in Rockford, Ill. in 1974, they have sold more than 20 million albums and had numerous hits.
