Def Leppard have announced a huge summer tour with Styx and Tesla. The 48-date outing will kick off in Tampa, Fla., on July 23 and will wrap in Bismarck, N.D., on Oct. 4. See the entire list of dates below.

In an interview with Billboard, Def Leppard frontman Joe Elliiott says there's some nice camaraderie between the bands on the bill. "Styx is a great bunch of guys and as American as mom's apple pie all the way through. And we had Tesla on board when we did the Hysteria tour back in '87; they were out for at least six or seven months with us before they went off to do their own thing. So it'll be a great time on stage and backstage, I think."

As we previously reported, Trixter’s Steve Brown filled in for Vivian Campbell while the guitarist was undergoing treatment for Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Campbell is expected to return to Def Leppard’s lineup for the tour, after he recently said he feels that his cancer is gone. Elliot shed more light on Vivian’s health, saying the guitarist is "in great form and cancer-free, from what I'm told."

Def Leppard have been hard at work on their follow-up to 2008's Songs From the Sparkle Lounge. According to Billboard, Elliott says the band has 15 songs "on the go" for the effort, which he says are "remarkably strong." He added, “It sounds like Def Leppard, but it sounds like Def Leppard stretching their wings a little bit.” The singer said the album will "absolutely” arrive later this year Tickets for the tour go on sale at 10 AM on Feb. 20 here.
