Def Leppard and Poison
Rock of Ages Tour 2012
Great Britain’s premiere arena rock band Def Leppard has sold over 100 million albums worldwide. They are one of only five rock bands with two original studio albums to have sold over 10 million copies in the United States with Hysteria in 1987 and Adrenalize in 1992. Some of their powerful rock anthems which have spanned their career include “Photograph,” “Rock of Ages,” “Pour Some Sugar on Me,” “Armageddon It,” “Love Bites” and “Two Steps Behind.” Most recently, the band released their first live album Mirror Ball: Live & More last summer which captured the group’s legendary concert experience.
Poison, one of rock’s most iconic and enduring bands, has been one of the music industry’s top acts with multi-platinum album sales and sold-out tours since first bursting on the scene in 1986 with hit singles like “Every Rose Has Its Thorn,” “Unskinny Bop,” “Something to Believe In” and “Nothin’ But a Good Time.” Throughout Poison’s career, the band’s members have enjoyed collaborative and solo successes from the stage to screen. Poison’s Bret Michaels has branched out as a solo artist, a successful reality star, businessman and activist. His most recent solo release, Custom Built shot to No. 1 on the Billboard Top Hard Rock Album chart. A lifelong diabetic with a serious commitment to the cause, Michaels donated his $250,000 “Celebrity Apprentice” prize to diabetes research.
One of two solo stars to spring from the ashes of the 70’s all-girl hard rock band The Runaways, Lita Ford has released seven studio albums since launching her solo career in 1983. Ford is scheduled to release her eighth album Living Like a Runaway this summer.
