ABOUT DEF LEPPARD:

With more than 110 million albums sold worldwide and two prestigious Diamond Awards in the U.S., 2019
Rock & Roll Hall of Fame® inductees Def Leppard – Joe Elliott (vocals), Phil Collen (guitar), Rick Savage
(bass), Vivian Campbell (guitar) and Rick Allen (drums) — continue 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 bar for generations of music fans and artists alike. The group’s spectacular
live shows and arsenal of hits have become synonymous with their name, leading Def Leppard to be
heralded as the world’s greatest live rock band. Def Leppard’s influential career includes numerous hit
singles and ground-breaking multi-platinum albums—including two of the best-selling albums of all time,
Pyromania and Hysteria, capturing the group’s legendary tracks, bringing together classic Leppard hits
such as “Rock of Ages”, Pour Some Sugar on Me” and “Foolin.” For the first time, in January 2018 Def
Leppard debuted their full recording catalog worldwide via streaming and download platforms. As they did
with the original release of their records, Def Leppard dominated the worldwide charts again, which found
their albums charting in the iTunes Top 10 in more than 30 countries, including Hysteria at #3 in the US,
and #5 in the UK (36 years after the album had charted at No 1 in the Billboard charts). Def Leppard also
had the #1, #2 and #3 records on the US catalog albums chart. The band have gone on to amass a
staggering 5.5 billion streams since 2018, reaching a younger 18-44 demographic that now represents
58% of their fanbase. Additionally, the band have garnered an impressive 15 million followers across their
social media platforms. In May 2022, Def Leppard released their twelfth studio album Diamond Star
Halos. The album debuted at #1 on the Apple and Amazon Music charts. The album also scored a Top
10 debut on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums chart, marking the band’s eighth Top 10 album of their career,
and garnered a #1 debut on Billboard’s Hard Rock chart. Diamond Star Halos had numerous Top 10
chart entries globally including a Top 5 debut in the UK. This has been followed by their 13th studio album
“Drastic Symphonies” with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in 2023. The album charted at no 4 in the
UK album charts – their highest UK chart entry in over 32 years. Following the close of their historic 2018
co-headline stadium and arena run in North America, Def Leppard sold more than 1,000,000 tickets, a
massive feat in today’s touring world. Def Leppard & Mötley Crüe topped that number yet again with
another sold out North American stadium run in 2022 selling over 1.3 million tickets. As always, the group
continues pushing the boundaries with their electrifying live shows.

 

ABOUT JOURNEY:

Since the group’s formation in 1973, JOURNEY has earned 19 top 40 singles, 25 gold and platinum
albums, and has sold over 100 million albums globally. Their “Greatest Hits” album is certified 15 timesplatinum, making JOURNEY one of the few bands to ever have been diamond-certified, and their song
“Don’t Stop Believin'” has been streamed over one billion times alone.
JOURNEY was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 2017, and 2018’s co-headlining tour
with DEF LEPPARD was the band’s most successful tour to date, landing them in the Top 10 year-end
touring chart with more than 1 million tickets sold, and earning them the prestigious Billboard “Legends
Of Live” touring award. March 2019 saw the release of “Escape & Frontiers Live In Japan”, a live
DVD/CD set from their concert at the Budokan in Tokyo featuring the band’s first-ever performances of
the albums “Escape” and “Frontiers” in their entirety. JOURNEY has also received a star on the
Hollywood Walk Of Fame and were inducted into the Hollywood Bowl Hall Of Fame. Additionally, the
band is the subject of the award-winning documentary “Don’t Stop Believin’: Everyman’s Journey”
about the band’s resurgence upon adding Arnel Pineda as lead singer after JOURNEY Founder, Neal
Schon discovered the Philippines native on YouTube.

 

ABOUT STEVE MILLER:

Steve Miller (Guitar, Harmonica, Vocals) has been a monumental presence on the American music scene
for more than half a century. At the start of his career, Miller became a mainstay of the San Francisco music
scene that upended American culture in the late 1960s. Beginning in the 1970s, Miller crafted a brand of
pure pop that was polished, exciting, and irresistible that dominated radio in a way few artists have ever
managed. Miller’s Greatest Hits 1974-78 is among the 25 best-selling albums of all time. He was inducted
into the Rock In Roll Hall of Fame in 2016 and in 2022 was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
Whether he and his band, are riding the top of the charts or traveling the endless blue highways of American
music, one can hear them playing and singing with conviction and precision, passion, and eloquence, and
making music that looks to the future, respects the past and is thrillingly alive in the present, and more than
able to stand the test of time.
