Newly streaming Def Leppard coming with Journey to Target Field in July

Def Leppard is a well-oiled machine.

There’s a double dose of ‘80s arena rock coming to your friendly neighborhood baseball stadium this summer.

While Target Field may have mostly been used for country shows in past years, Def Leppard and Journey will be [insert some lame baseball pun here] at The House That Chesney Built this July 27.

Tickets go on sale Feb. 3, though no other details are available yet, including the small detail of how much you’re expected to pay.

If you want to get pumped with some hot, sticky sweet pop-metal in the meantime, Def Lep’s catalog is finally streaming on Spotify, Apple, and all suchlike music services. Get pyromaniacal, hysterical, and adrenalized, you rock ‘n’ roll clowns.

Journey, of course, has pulled off the rare feat of replacing a beloved frontman (Steve Perry) with a new singer who’s also won over fans (Arnel Pineda). They were also video game pioneers, as seen in this clip from the distant past.
