British rock legends, Def Leppard, have just announced a Canada-wide tour — and for once that doesn't mean they're only going to Vancouver and Toronto and then going home.
In fact, it looks like the band isn't planning on playing in Toronto or Vancouver at all!
To see if your nearest metropolis made the cut, take a look at the tour schedule below.
TL;DR Def Leppard is doing a Canada-wide tour, stopping in 11 Canadian cities across the nation... though Toronto and Vancouver are noticeably absent from the list. Check if your city made the cut below...
The band will start in the Maritimes and make its way west, though like I mentioned above, they won't go as far west as Vancouver.
The last stop on the tour will actually be Calgary, before the band heads home.
They will be joined by band Tesla at every concert.
What I don't understand is why Jon Bon Jovi is playing with them in Europe but isn't joining them when they come to Canada!
That's not to say that Tesla isn't also a great band, but man... a little JBJ would really seal the deal for me.
While some fans have complained about the steep prices of Def Leppard tickets, the band is a worldwide phenomenon that will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on March 29th of this year.
Plus, clearly, the entire tour consists of shows in arenas and huge stadiums, so you know you're going to get a huge and amazing show.
Other bands getting the nod from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year include The Cure, Janet Jackson, Stevie Nicks, Radiohead, Roxy Music, and The Zombies.
Def Leppard won the fan vote this year, beating out Stevie Nicks with over 100,000 votes.
