Poison frontman Brett Michaels told the crowd at his November solo gig in Allentown, PA that Def Leppard/Poison will play Hershey in 2012.
This concert took place on 18th November 2011 at the Crocodile Rock Cafe. Hershey is also in the state of Pennsylvania and was not included on the 2009 tour when the two bands last toured together.
It appears as if Bret has been making similar announcements at almost all his recent US solo tour stops. The tour is billed as the 'Get Your Rock On' tour as a preview to his 2012 solo album of the same name which he reportedly wants to have Joe Elliott and Phil Collen contribute to (according to an August 2011 article by Billboard). The same article also mentioned Bret's 'hopes' to tour with Def Leppard again in 2012.
