Def Leppard Set To Announce Canadian Tour (With Montreal Date)

Def Leppard 2015. Montreal 2015

Def Leppard will announce their 2017 Canadian tour very soon and a show in Montreal looks likely to be included.

The 2017 tour has so far had five dates confirmed, all festivals in the USA during late April through to the end of May.

The Musik Universe website has now suggested the Canadian leg of the tour will be announced very soon.

They have also mentioned a Montreal date for Monday 10th April.

The show (when and if it is confirmed) would take place at the Bell Centre.

This was last played on 2nd May 2015 during the April/May 2015 Canadian tour that kicked off the 2015/2016 world tour.

The Bell Centre (or Centre Bell) calendar currently has that date free.

It was Phil who first mentioned plans for a another comprehensive run of shows in Canada back in August 2016 when he said they would be playing outside of just Toronto and Montreal.

Vivian told Eonmusic in December the 2017 tour would last for about three months.

A radio station news story posted last week mentioned possible plans for a longer US Summer tour.

2017 Tour Dates

"I hope so. Yeah. Again you know that'd be really cool. I mean yeah, we just have to fit it in. There's a lot of places we haven't - I think that that's usually the thing. We've neglected, you know, a lot of the Canadian dates. We usually just go up and do, you know, it's like Toronto or Montreal, Quebec and that and then the rest of the country."

"So we do have a - we have to go up there. So I've got a feeling that - we are gonna do a US tour as well - but it's just gonna be in conjunction with that. There's a lot of places we haven't played. I mean we started this tour earlier on in the year. We was playing places like Hidalgo, Texas and we hadn't been there for like a million years."
