Music fans have a tendency to forget that great music can come from any corner of the globe. While some of the world's biggest bands have been formed in the U.S., many of them are also formed in different corners of the globe. Def Leppard is one of the most popular rock bands of all-time, making it hard to secure Def Leppard tickets, and the group was formed across the pond in the United Kingdom. The popularity of the group over time is evident in the sale of Def Leppard tickets and the massive sales of the group's albums.
Def Leppard was formed in 1977 in Sheffield, England during the New Wave of British Heavy Metal. Rick Savage, Tony Kenning, and Pete Willis were the original members of the group when it was formed as Atomic Mass in 1977. Shortly after the group formed, Joe Elliot tried out as a guitarist for the group and would go on to become the lead singer for the group. In fact, Elliot is credited with proposing the group use the name Def Leppard, though he originally proposed it with the spelling "Deaf Leopard."

In those early years the band was accused by fans in the UK of trying to garner more interest in America than at home in the UK. Song titles such as "Hello America" and a tour schedule that featured more dates in the US than the UK slanted fans against the group. By 1983, the group had connected with Robert John Lange, the producer for AC/DC. He began to produce the group's albums; and while early results were mediocre, he is credited with helping the group discover a consistent sound.
Def Leppard tickets and albums peaked in terms of commercial success in the 1980s and early-1990s, but the group maintains a devoted following even now. Since the early-90s, the group has maintained the same lineup year-after-year with Rick Savage, Joe Elliot, Rick Allen, Phil Collen, and Vivian Campbell sticking with the group for over 20 years. Savage and Elliot are the only remaining members from the formative years of Def Leppard.
During the course of the band's history, a consistent sound has developed that includes a mixture of hard rock, adult oriented rock, heavy metal, and even pop elements. Def Leppard tickets remain a popular seller today as older and younger generations flock to their music. To date, the group has sold more than 100 million records around the world and has had two albums receive RIAA diamond certification.
Those who purchase Def Leppard tickets are treated to concerts that feature powerful melodic anthems. Over the past three decades, Def Leppard has become an immense force in the touring industry and still sell out venues worldwide. For the summer of 2014, Def Leppard will be embarking on a tour with KISS in celebration of the latter group's 40th anniversary. Def Leppard tickets are on sale now for the opening date in Salt Lake City, UT on 23 June. The tour is set to conclude on 31 August in Woodlands, TX.
