LOS ANGELES, Feb. 25 (UPI) -- British rock group Def Leppard announced plans Friday for a U.S. summer concert tour.

Heart is to accompany them on the tour, which is to kick off June 15 in West Palm Beach, Fla.

"After having had the last 18 months off, Leppard are ready to get back on the road! Add Heart to the bill and it truly makes for a special evening," Leppard lead Joe Elliott said in a statement.
