News - Def Leppard 2012 Tour To Be Titled Rock Of Ages

Monday, 16th January 2012 | 


Def Leppard's upcoming 2012 tour will be named 'Rock Of Ages' after the movie which is due out in June.

Phil Collen and his wife's joint facebook profile 'Phillen' confirmed the tour title over this past weekend. Phil himself has suggested a tie-in with the movie release for the tour in a few of his recent interviews including the possibility of other bands involved in the film supporting them.

Three Def Leppard songs feature during the movie (and 'possibly' it's soundtrack album) - 'Pour Some Sugar On Me', 'Rock Of Ages' and 'Bringin' On The Heartbreak'. Most of you will of course be aware that the 2005 North American/Mexican tour was also named 'Rock Of Ages' after the 'Rock Of Ages The Definitive Collection' greatest hits release of the same name.

"Def Leppard's upcoming 2012 Rock Of Ages tour (named after the Broadway blockbuster musical turned film release for the summer of 2012)."

Phil Collen - 6th January Interview Quote

"We're gonna be going out, Def Leppard, this year and the 'Rock Of Ages' movie is coming out so we're actually gonna be going out on tour because obviously 'Rock Of Ages' is one of our songs."

Phil Collen - 5th January Interview Quote

"If it does end up happening like that, I would love for the third band to be someone like Twisted Sister, since they're also in the new movie. I think that would make for a great lineup!"
