TVD Ticket Giveaway: Def Leppard, Poison, and Lita Ford at MPP, 7/10

What will breathe firey rock through your ears until you can’t stop head banging to the best of their legendary ’80s catalog? Def Leppard, that’s what.

The Arena Rock vets are set up to break down at the Merriweather Post Pavilion with fellow hair metal legends Poison and Lita Ford.

Because nothing says an amazing night out like shredding guitar and suggestive lyricism, you’d be worse than damned not to attempt to grab tickets for this amazing show at Merriweather Post Pavilion on July 1oth, which go on sale Friday at 10am. And one lucky reader will get to go courtesy of MPP because we have a pair of lawn tickets for you to win.

Def Leppard are not just rock and roll stars; they were and continue to be titans of the new wave of British heavy metal brought to prominence in the early 1980s. With two albums selling over 10 million copies worldwide, the five-some have shown their prowess behind their gigantic drums, shrieking guitars, and raspy signature vocals. A back catalog that spans over ten albums with plenty of catchy hits will bring the heat to the pavilion.

In addition to the mammoth sounds of Def Leppard, fellow hair metal notables from this side of the pond Poison will be making an appearance to blow some minds and maybe a few speakers in the process. You can expect chart-topping tracks like “Every Rose Has Its Thorn,” “I Want Action,” and “I Won’t Forget You” all spruced up with fast guitar licks and not-so-subtle lyrics.

Now just because metal might be a male-dominated genre—that’s not to say that all of its occupants have to be a dude. Breaking right in the height of the style’s popularity, Lita Ford is one hell of a representative for the female population. Ford is sure to bring just as much raunchy guitar work and amazing vox talent as any of the boys.

So I know you’re wondering—with all this fantastically tasty rock at your finger tips, how can you dig in to guarantee your spot at the event? Well it’s simple! With such fantastic representation from the ’80s, provide us with your favorite TV show from everyone’s favorite decade in the comments below.

The winner will be chosen at noon on Friday (3/23) so get your thoughts in now before its too late!

    There were so many great shows. And so many bad ones. But I must say that the show I watched religiously was Small Wonder. And if you look back at that show now, you will see how creepy it is!
