You might recall when the news circulated about DEF LEPPARD having to cancel their entire few week tour based on band illness and while it surely sucked its better in the long run that the band be healthy and on point as opposed to doing half-assed, unhealthy shows. I’m posting the new dates below for your calendar preparation. As you can see neither the Brooklyn show or Atlantic City have been rescheduled so who knows if those gigs are coming back and worst of all neither Styx or Tesla will be on any of these makeup dates.
Def Leppard Rescheduled Dates:
May 04 – Lafayette, LA – Cajundome
May 05 – Corpus Christi, TX – American Bank Center
May 07 – Hidalgo, TX – State Farm Arena
May 10 – Bossier City, LA – CenturyLink Center
May 11 – North Little Rock, AK – Verizon Arena
May 13 – Greensboro, NC – Greensboro Coliseum
May 15 – Uncasville, CT – Mohegan Sun Arena
May 17 – Allentown, PA – PPL Center
May 20 – Orlando, FL – Amway Center
PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’m not really going to lament about this all that much because I don’t have the time to feel bad about the lack of the two dates that were possibilities to me and my Metal neighbors, I guess those two venues are just too booked up to have easily been set back up. This information came to the Metal Media desk yesterday but I had other items to get online which is why you’re seeing this bright and early in the AM. I really wanted to see them in Brooklyn and especially with Styx who I still have never seen in concert and who doesn’t love a little Tesla in their day. I’m glad that the band is back to feeling better of course and I will leave it at that. Now it’s time for me to get myself ready to meet friends because we are checking out the mighty Black Sabbath at Madison Square Garden tonight. It’s pretty exciting. See you next time and oh yeah, let me know what you think about the rescheduled tour dates in the comments.
