The ’80s rock band Def Leppard is booking a return trip to Spokane this spring.

The British band responsible for such hits as “Photograph,” “Rock of Ages” and “Pour Some Sugar On Me,” will play the Spokane Arena on June 7. They were last in town in September 2015, when they headlined an arena show with Styx and Tesla.

Tesla is back on this tour with Joe Elliott and the boys. Also on the bill will be Poison, whose lead singer, Bret Michaels, headlined a rock festival in Spokane just last month.

The three-month Leppard tour will kick off April 8 in Manchester, New Hampshire, and wrap up on June 25 in Indianapolis.

Tickets to the Def Leppard concert go on sale at 10 a.m. Jan. 21 through all TicketsWest outlets, www.ticketswest.com or (800) 325-SEAT. Prices will range from $29.50 to $125.
