Def Leppard comes to Tulsa

Tulsa Today is pleased to welcome Def Leppard to Tulsa.

Throughout the years, Def Leppard has proven that they’re a rock band quite like no other.

One thing is certain– there is sure to be more than a few great hit songs that get those lights flickering and the crowd singing at this triple header concert, featuring not only Def Leppard, but Poison and Cheap Trick.

It’s been said that these amazingly talented classic rock bands have sustained the test of time in large part to their energetic stage shows and diverse, heartfelt song collections.

Consider the song, Foolin’ by Def Leppard. That tune has some lyrical poetry in it that tugs at the insides and just won’t let go. I can hear the words now:

"Lady luck never smiles
So lend your love to me awhile
Do with me what you will
Break the spell take your fill
On and on we rode the storm
The flame has died and the fire has gone
Oh, this empty bed is a night alone
I realized that long ago."

In wailing out that tune, a person can’t forget the likes of the other songs, too, such as "Love Bites" Def Leppard Utube and "Photograph." Def Leppard Utube.

With a great suitcase of classics and a whole new line up of amazing classic rock, Def Leppard, Poison and Cheap Trick are rolling into town Saturday night to put on a show that is a definite must see for classic rock fans everywhere!
