Def Leppard, Poison and Tesla Are Coming To Grand Rapids
The "Animal Spring Tour 2017" kicks off in Manchester, NH on April 8th then pours some sugar on the East Coast, Midwest and the deep South.
I've been lucky enough to see all three of these bands in concert. Poison 3 times, Def Leppard twice and Tesla once. I know from experience, they are going to rock it!
I have very fond memories of seeing Tesla perform in the 103.3 KFR lobby in 1991 as an 18 year old intern. Here's a little bit of Tesla performing "Love Song."
Front man Bret Michaels says, “I could not be more excited. I know all of us will give one thousand percent on stage and we are looking forward to performing our hits together. I personally could not be more thankful for the three generations of fans and I love the music of Def Leppard and Tesla. This will be an amazing night of rock and roll. Don’t wait because god only knows.”
Front man Joe Elliott says, “We're thrilled to be able to take this tour to cities we didn't play in 2016. The demand for us to return, or rather extend the tour was phenomenal! There's a great buzz around the band right now and we're loving the fact that we can do this with the latest album being so well received.”
Tickets will go on sale on January 20th and 21st at LiveNation.com. The
Def Leppard Rock Brigade Concert Club presales begin on January 17th also at LiveNation.com.
