Def Leppard fans just got some more sugar poured on them! On Thursday, February 13, the mega-popular rock band announced that they would be touring with fellow rock music icons ZZ Top this fall, along with dates and locations for their new Def Leppard 2020 Vision Tour on their social media.

Def Leppard will certainly be in illustrious company this year, having already sold over one million tickets on their upcoming summer tour with Motley Crue and Poison, which runs from June 18 till September 5.

The official Def Leppard Twitter account made this short announcement to reveal the good news: "Hello America! Def Leppard + @ZZTop announce 2020 Vision tour this fall. For all dates + info, hit http://DefLeppard.com."

Legendary Def Leppard frontman Joe Elliott revealed his excitement in an official statement: "What a year this is going to be! First, sold-out stadiums, then we get to go on tour with the mighty ZZ Top!"

The vocalist also confessed that his band is big-time fans of the Texas-based blues-rock trio, saying: "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."

So if you're excited (or hysterical!) to see these two legendary rock bands in the flesh, sign up for their tour quick as you can!

Rock Brigade fan presale tickets for the Def Leppard Tour 2020 can be purchased from 10 am ET on Monday, February 17 onwards, all the way through to 10 pm ET on Thursday, February 20. For the Def Leppard general sale, tickets will be made available from 10 am ET on Friday, February 21 onwards.

However, in order to gain access to the fan presale, Def Leppard fans must first join the band's online fan club for $45, which is exclusive of the shipping fees. Once they become a member, fans will then be able to purchase up to four tickets for themselves in the tour presale.

However, it must be noted that joining the fan club does not guarantee ticket availability since these Def Leppard tickets are likely to sell out quickly. But there are many more perks to be had!

Besides gaining access to the tour presale, Def Leppard fans will also receive a 2020 Official Rock Brigade Membership T-shirt and official pin when they register for the fan club.

There are also numerous VIP packages being sold — these bespoke deals include meet and greets, Q&As, a photograph with the band, exclusive merchandise and a front-row seat.
