The 20/20 Vision tour will see both bands play a total of 16 shows across the US, kicking off on September 21 at the Albany Times Union Center, and ending at the Spokane Arena on October 18.
Def Leppard frontman Joe Elliott says: “What a year this is going to be! First, sold out stadiums, then we get to go on tour with the mighty ZZ Top!
“Having been an admirer of the band for a lifetime it’s gonna be a real pleasure to finally do some shows together. Maybe some of us will get to go for a spin with Billy Gibbons in one of those fancy cars.”
Tickets for the tour will go on general sale from 10am local time on February 21, with members of Def Leppard’s Rock Brigade fan club getting access to tickets from 10am on February 17.
