About Def Leppard
With 100 million records sold worldwide and two prestigious Diamond Awards to their credit, Def Leppard–Joe Elliott (vocals), Vivian Campbell (guitar), Phil Collen (guitar), Rick “Sav” Savage (bass) and Rick Allen (drums)—continues to be one of the most important forces in rock music. Over the course of their career, the band has produced a series of classic groundbreaking albums that set the sound for generations of music fans and artists alike. The group’s spectacular live shows, filled with powerful melodic rock anthems, have become synonymous with their name. For the past thirty years the band’s concerts have become must-see events and have quickly made them an institution in the touring industry, as they continue to sell out arenas worldwide.
Poison, one of rock’s most enduring bands, has been one of the music industry’s top acts, with multi-platinum album sales and sold out tours since first bursting onto the scene in 1986. The success of the band’s recent album releases and tours shows that Poison is as potent 26 years after the release of their debut album, Look What The Cat Dragged In, as ever. Poison’s Bret Michaels (lead vocals, guitar), C.C. Deville (lead guitar, vocals), Bobby Dall (bass) and Rikki Rockett (drums), have sold more than 30 million albums worldwide and charted twelve Top 10 hits. Throughout Poison’s career, the band’s members have enjoyed collaborative and solo successes from the stage to screen. Bret has branched out as a solo artist, a successful run as a reality star, businessman and activist. His most recent solo release, “Custom Built” shot to Number One on the Billboard Top Hard Rock Album chart. A lifelong diabetic with a serious commitment to the cause, Bret donated his $250,000 “Celebrity Apprentice” prize to diabetes research, earning him the honor of being a spokesperson for the American Diabetes Association.
