U.K. rockers Def Leppard have announced the release date for their most recent album, Songs From The Sparkle Lounge. The date is a meaningful one for Irish and wanna-be Irish folks around the world, Saint Patrick’s Day, March 17.
Unfortunately for fans in the rest of the world, the March 17 date is only for the U.K. release, but fans in the rest of the world won’t have to wait long since the very next day, March 18, marks the release for them. Both these dates are reported to be tentative and may be changed.
One surprise coming with the new album is that the album’s first single, a song entitled “Nine Lives” will feature a guest performance by country singing star Tim McGraw.
March 27 will mark the date the group plans to hit the road in support of the new album. The tour will start at the Greensboro Coliseum in Greensboro, NC.
