Def Leppard, Poison and Tesla will team up for a nearly three-month-long tour this spring. This marks the first tour to feature all four original Poison members in more than five years.

“I could not be more excited,” declared Poison frontman Bret Michaels. “I know all of us will give one thousand percent onstage 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 ‘n’ roll. Don’t wait because god only knows.”

Def Leppard will release a new live Blu-ray / DVD / CD set titled And There Will Be a Next Time, drawn from their 2016 tour, on Feb. 10. “Our last full concert DVD, excluding Viva! Hysteria, was 1987’s In the Round, In Your Face, which was shot on video,” explains guitarist Phil Collen. “We felt an updated version was way overdue, so here it is, the brand new Def Leppard concert experience.”

Def Leppard will appear at all of the 38 dates listed below, including four solo headlining dates and four festival appearances. None of those eight shows will feature the other two acts. Poison will join them for the remaining 30 dates, with Tesla excluded from two more — April 26 in Louisville and June 21 in Kansas City.
