Tour de Force

Def Leppard, Styx, and Tesla Tip You Off to Summertime Cougar Gathering Locations


def leppard cougarWhat’s got five heads, ten legs, nine arms, big summer tour plans? Why, Def Leppard, of course!

The 80s pop metal band that has arguably embarrassed themselves the least since their heyday ended have announced what I think we can all agree is the nostalgia fest of the season: in addition to the Pyromaniacs, the trek will include Styx and Tesla. Bummer that Night Ranger weren’t available, too, but still: the chance to hear “Photograph,” “Mr. Roboto,” and “Modern Day Cowboy” all in one night will be too much for many of us to resist.

Further making this tour a hard one to pass up: it’s sure to attract plenty of cougars on the prowl! And the best thing about those women is that you absolutely cannot get them pregnant. SCORE!
