Def Leppard May Tour With Poison In 2017 After Pyromania Residency

Poison singer Bret Michaels has once again said his band Poison will tour with Def Leppard in 2017 during a new interview.

He previously did this in both 2009 and 2012 before those tours were actually announced.

They eventually were with Poison playing as special guests on the Sparkle Lounge and Rock Of Ages tours.

See a history of his tour updates below and some related Poison news.

This time he was speaking during an interview with the Salt Lake Tribune.

Currently there are no plans for Def Leppard to play live in 2017 but they do intend to record new material according to Vivian Campbell's recent interviews.

Any live plans "so far" are restricted to the VIVIA! Pyromania residency in Las Vegas which Vivian heavily hinted at in an April interview when asked about the lack of a Las Vegas date on the current tour. An event which seems likely to happen (if indeed it does) in the first half of 2017.

Bret is currently touring on his own with Ratt, Dokken, Warrant and Lita Ford (who was also part of the 2012 tour with Poison).

He was asked about the possibility of Poison reuniting for a tour and mentioned the Def Leppard plans. Which, as in the past with both Lep and Motley Crue, may be known only to him at this point.

As you can see from the linked stories he last said this in 2013 about the 2014 tour which did not feature Poison (and then again in 2014 about the 2015 tour).

After the 2014 tour Rikki Rockett suggested KISS chose Def Leppard over Poison as their tour partners.

In other Poison news their drummer Rikki Rockett was recently declared cancer free after undergoing treatment in the last few months.

The Salt Lake Tribune - Bret Michaels Interviews Quotes

Poison Playing Live Again?

"The honest answer to that is I absolutely hope so, and next year it'll be Poison and Def Leppard. The last time we were out was, I think, 2012, and we'll go out and bring it again, and it'll be insane."
