About the tour, Def Leppard singer Joe Elliott said:

“What a year this is going to be! First, sold out stadiums, then we get to go on tour with the mighty ZZ Top! Having been an admirer of the band for a lifetime, it’s gonna be a real pleasure to finally do some shows together. … Maybe some of us will get to go for a spin with Billy in one of those fancy cars.”

ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons also talked about it:

“We’re excited about hitting the road with Def Leppard this fall; we’ve been fans of theirs since forever. We’ve been at this for 50 years now, and the forthcoming run with them underscores that the good times are really just beginning. Joe Elliott is always welcome to ride ‘shotgun’ with us, and we won’t even ask him to pay for the gas.”

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
