Earlier today, Def Leppard and Journey announced a co-headlining North American tour featuring both stadium and arena concerts.

Journey will headline half the shows and Def Leppard will headline the other half. The tour will feature all-new production from both bands.

It comes to Quicken Loans Arena on Monday, May 28.

“These co-headlining Journey/Def Leppard dates will be epic classic rock shows," Journey's Neal Schon says in a press release. "So many hits.”

"Twelve years ago we embarked on a U.S. tour with Journey and it was an absolute blast," adds Def Leppard's Rick Savage. "Looking forward to hooking up again. Believe me, this will be even more spectacular."

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. on Saturday, February 3.
