Following our tip several weeks ago, we can now officially tell you that it’s time to break out the stonewashed denim and leopard print because we can now announce that Def Leppard are set to head to Australia in October. What’s more, they’re bringing Canadian rockers Heart with them as their special guests. The Leppard have only publicly announced the one date, which will be at Perth’s NIB Stadium in Perth on the 15th of October (probably because someone at Ticketmaster listed the gig before it had been announced) but you can bet your bottom dollar that there will be other dates around Australia.

Starting out in Sheffield in the UK in 1977, Def Leppard have sold over 65 million records worldwide. Despite the loss of drummer Rick Allen’s right arm in 1984 and the death of founding guitarist Steve Clark in 1991, the band were unstoppable, with albums Hysteria and Adrenalize topping the charts worldwide and seeing the band strutting their stuff in stadiums across the globe.
