Earlier tonight (Wednesday, May 21), DEF LEPPARD kicked off the European leg of its 2008 Sparkle Lounge tour. Starting at the Classic Rock Festival in Sandnes, Norway, the band will play in almost 20 European countries (including some where they have never been before) over the next two months.
For the third leg of the tour (North America), all support acts/guests have now been finalized. During the 16-date leg, there will be no less than five acts opening for DEF LEPPARD:
JOAN JETT AND THE BLACKHEARTS (July 30 – Aug. 3)
BILLY IDOL (Aug. 6-15 and Aug. 17-21)
EVERCLEAR (Aug. 16)
