Two of the world's most celebrated classic rock bands, Journey and Def Leppard, are teaming up for a 60-date North American tour and they're coming to Florida – but not here.

The tour stops in Fort Lauderdale Aug. 17 at the BB&T Center, and in Tampa on Aug. 18 at Amalie Arena.

This partnership is not new to fans; the bands toured together in 2006. However, on this tour both bands will alternate who opens and closes each night.

Tickets go on sale Feb. 3 and you can find them here.
