The British heavy metal legends will kick-off their Aussie tour in Perth before making their way around the country including shows in Adelaide and Perth.
And in an extra special treat Def Leppard they will be joined by American rockers Heart, who will be playing Australia for the very first time and Oz rock legends Choirboys.
Triple M Sydney's Becko jumped out of his is seat when he heard the news the rockers responsible for all those classic anthems from the Pyromania and Hysteria albums like "Love Bites", "Pour Some Sugar on Me", "Hysteria" and "Rocket" were coming down under.
"I was only seven when I was given a copy of Hysteria, my first album and most treasured of all time - I still listen to the original vinyl. I can't wait to see Def Leppard: the band that I grew up with and one of the greatest rock acts ever."
Dangerous Dave from Triple M Melbourne remembered: "In 1988 if your pencil case didn’t have an ACDC or Def Leppard logo on it you were destined for a lifetime of Rick Astley. These guys always impress on stage. I salute just one arm (Thanks Rick Allen)!".
