Journey, Def Leppard to come to Knoxville this summer on U.S. tour

No "Foolin'" here. Journey and Def Leppard are teaming up for a big tour, and Knoxville will be one of their stops across the U.S.

The sound of '80s rock will sweep into Thompson-Boling Arena this summer.

Journey and Def Leppard will play in Knoxville on June 6, part of a 58-show tour that pairs two of that era's enduring names. The summer-long run is being officially announced this morning after several days of online buzz.

Tickets for the show will go on sale to the general public on Feb. 3.
