The 2016 Def Leppard Tour

"That's just a one - you know that's just four days. That's actually this month as well. I think that's the 21st. I think we set sail and then we come back and it's like you know North Carolina, Florida, South Texas, Louisiana. Then we do kind of an East Coast run. New York. We just played Japan, Australia, Singapore, England. And now we're gonna make some American dates. That's really what that is. So I'm not sure about some California ones."

"But you know obviously with Delta Deep we're gonna be hitting all the California stuff right now. We're doing Agoura Hills, San Juan Capistrano, Hermosa Beach. We're so thrilled and you know we've got a rehearsal again today which is gonna be a lot of fun."

Delta Deep Tour Plans

"It all goes together. We literally like I said you know we finished the show in Sheffield. The next day was the Delta Deep show. We're doing six California dates on the Sugar Shack tour. We're gonna be doing obviously an East Coast run at some point. And you know a down south run. Maybe a Mid-West run. We have to do it in the gaps. So I'm really looking forward to this. We're kind of driving ourselves and you know Helen my wife's kind of tour managing doing all this stuff. So it's very home grown. You know it's lugging you're own gear. Playing small places. And it's so much fun and then when we fire up it's just this monster. It's not just like some rich bunch of rock stars like a side project or something like that. It's the real deal. It's actually we get out there. We get dirty and we get down and get funky."
