Classic rock band Def Leppard is currently on the road for the month of October, playing a string of dates in the U.S. with British-American hard rock band Foreigner. The current tour run follows the band’s large four-month summer run with Styx and Tesla, and tickets on the secondary market are approximately 10 percent more expensive for the band’s October dates.
The multi-platinum sellers will also include Tesla on the first half of the dates, and '80s rock band Night Ranger for the second half. Currently, resale tickets to see Def Leppard are averaging $148. For the upcoming tour stops, the band’s priciest show is currently their October 17 stop at Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena in Florida, where an average ticket is $189 with a get-in price of $59. On October 9, the tour will swing into Tulsa to perform at the BOK Center, and tickets are the cheapest for that date. At the moment, a resell ticket is going for an average of $124, while the get-in ticket price clocks in at $35, according to TotallyTickets.
For the band’s summer outing, secondary tickets were slightly cheaper, averaging $134 for all dates. The band saw their priciest show in August when they played a date at the The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in Texas. The average ticket for that show was $421, and a get-in ticket was $73. Conversely, they played their most inexpensive show at the Klipsch Music Center in Indiana on August 30. An average ticket for that date was only $59, and a get-in ticket was just $24.
Def Leppard, who has been touring the globe since the late-'70s, will release a self-titled album on October 30. The band’s new single, “Let's Go,” has reached eighth on the Classic Rock Radio Chart. The band is best known for their major hits “Foolin’,” “Pour Some Sugar on Me,” and “Rock of Ages.” Opening act Foreigner just recently closed out a lengthy stint on the Cheap Date summer tour run with Kid Rock.
