Iconic 1980s rockers Def Leppard have announced a New Zealand show in November, accompanied by German rock band Scorpions.

The two bands will play Spark Arena on Monday November 12.

Def Leppard will be playing their seminal 1987 album Hysteria in full, as well as a number of greatest hits from their extended catalogue.

Scorpions will be accompanying the band, marking their first New Zealand visit in their over 50-year history.


Tickets are on sale from Live Nation from 1pm on May 4.

Def Leppard have sold more than 100 million records worldwide.

They are one of only five rock bands with two original studio albums selling over 10 million copies in the Us alone.

The band had long resisted digital sales and streaming of their music until earlier this year.
