Def Leppard and Bryan Adams Tour 2005, Def Leppard and Bryan Adams Tour 2005 in baseball stadiums.
This summer, Def Leppard and Bryan Adams will give the phrase "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" a whole new meaning as they co-headline the Rock 'N Roll Double-Header Tour. Two of the most popular rock acts to ever take the stage, they will team up for the first time and perform at 26 minor league baseball stadiums. The rock 'n roll season opens June 1st in Portland, OR, at the home of the Beavers, then travels down the West Coast and through Texas before heading to the East Coast and into the Midwest where it will end the season August 10th in Lansing, MI, at the home of the Lugnuts. In each park, the stage will be set up in the outfield and fans can either bring a blanket to sit on the field or take a seat in the stands. All concerts take place on non-game days. Tickets for some markets go on sale as soon as March 12.
Bryan Adams and Def Leppard, combined, have sold more than 100,000,000 albums worldwide. Each made their album debut in 1980 -- and 25 years later they are still hitting homeruns as each releases a new album in 2005.
Def Leppard's place in music history? Only five rock groups can claim two original albums selling 10,000,000+ copies each in the U.S.: The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Van Halen and Def Leppard. The British band's blockbuster "Pyromania" hit #2 and 10 times platinum; "Hysteria" soared even higher -- #1 and 13 times platinum -- led by the #1 single "Love Bites." The retrospective "Vault" has sold more than 7,000,000 copies worldwide. Now "Def Leppard -- Rock of Ages: The Definitive Collection" (Mercury/UMe), to be released May 17, 2005, marks the band's biggest-ever "best of" album and the first two-CD set in the group's phenomenal career, featuring the newly recorded single, "No Matter What" (originally recorded by Badfinger).
Bryan Adams is Canada's most highly acclaimed musician, whose career has spanned more than three decades. This spring will see the release of Adams' most recent CD, "Room Service," which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard European Top 100 Album Chart! An accomplished photographer, his current body of work will be soon be seen in his new book, "Calvin Klein -- American Women," also scheduled to debut this spring.
Adams' meteoric rise on the charts began with his 3rd album, "Cuts Like a Knife," that landed in the Top 10 and was soon followed by the No. 1 charted "Reckless!" In addition to his album, Adams film credits include "(Everything I Do) I Do It For You" which topped the U.S. charts for 7 weeks and became the longest running #1 in the history of the British charts. His other #1s include -- "Have You Ever Really Loved A Woman?," "Heaven" and "All For Love" (with Rod Stewart and Sting). The Grammy award-winning artist has been nominated for 3 Oscars and 3 Golden Globe Awards for music; he has received 18 Juno Awards (Grammy equivalent in Canada), an American Music Award, and Five ASCAP Film and Television Music Awards for Most Performed Song from a Motion Picture.
