Def Leppard will play up to five dates in South America later this year according to Joe Elliott speaking earlier on his weekly radio show.

Joe announced after opening his show with the classic song 'Back In The Saddle' that the band will play four shows with Aerosmith in South America.

These four shows include the already announced date at Rock In Rio on 21st September. They also appear to be in addition to another show with The Who - also mentioned by Joe last week but believed to be a reference to Rock In Rio.

Local fans and press have continued to talk and speculate about carious shows featuring Aerosmith and Def Leppard.

An updated list of these dates is shown below with some new additions - mostly rumoured by Aerosmith fans as part of their own 2017 tour.

Local news sites and fans are also now speculating that the 'megafestival' in Santiago, Chile on 29th/30th September will take place in both Rosario and Buenos Aires, Argentina in early October.

None of the shows below have been announced or confirmed. The three other shows mentioned by Joe may (or may not) be listed amongst them.
