Journey and Def Leppard are set to co-headline stages at stadiums and arenas around the continent.

The 58-city trek kicks off in May 21 in Hartford, CT and concludes October 6 in Los Angeles.

This isn’t the bands’ first collaborative tour, but it’s been 12 years since Journey and Def Leppard hit the road together.

“These co-headlining Journey/Def Leppard dates will be epic classic rock shows. So many hits. It will be great to see you all, friends!” said Journey's Neil Schon in a prepared statement.

Def Leppard's Joe Elliott added, “This tour is going to be a blast! We’ve toured together before and it was massive. This time it’s going to be even bigger and better!”
