If you’ve got the chance, go see The Stadium Tour. In life, we have very few chances to see the greatest acts do what they do best on the grandest stages. For several years, The Stadium Tour seemed improbable, but on June 24th, 2020, at Citi Field in Queens, NY, an up-and-coming act, a fearless rock warrior, and three of rock music history’s most seminal bands, accomplished the improbable, and then some.
In the minds of many, the 1980s will forever be remembered as a decade characterized by innovation, overindulgence, and transcendent music.

Though often overlooked and relegated to a mere footnote in the band’s illustrious history, drummer Tony Kenning played a vital role in laying the foundation for world-renowned Rock act, Def Leppard.
