DEF LEPPARD and JOURNEY will be teaming up for a U.S. tour this summer. So far only one date has been officially announced: July 13 at the Chastain Park Amphitheatre in Atlanta, Georgia.

DEF LEPPARD's two-CD collection of hits, "Rock of Ages", has sold 463,000 copies in the United States since its May 2005 release, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Meanwhile, the band's 1999 "Vault - Greatest Hits" (Mercury) collection has shifted more than four million copies so far.

DEF LEPPARD's all-covers set, entitled "Yeah!", is tentatively scheduled for release in May. Guitarist Phil Collen told last year that the album will include "a bunch of stuff — all '70s stuff. Most of it is songs that we grew up with in England. 'No Matter What' by BADFINGER is going to be the leadoff single. We've done 'Waterloo Sunset' by THE KINKS, T. REX, MOTT THE HOOPLE, ROXY MUSIC and THIN LIZZY. And a lot of it is obscure; it's not the standard stuff. It's not like STONES or BEATLES songs."
