Def Leppard and Whitesnack will rock Glasgow later this year after announcing a co-headlining show at the city's SSE Hydro.

The bands will play the Hydro on December 10, with support from Black Star Riders.

Def Leppard frontman Joe Elliott said: "I am very excited to be working with Whitesnake again; we had such a wonderful time when we did it back in 2008. It's a great experience for rock fans to be able to see two great live bands on the same stage on the same night."

Whitesnake's David Coverdale said: "Ohh, have you got trouble…Brother Joe & The Lepps?…DC & The Snakes?... Them Black Star Riders?…On the same night???…I can't wait!!...SEE YOU THERE!!!"

Tickets for the show, which cost £50.40 including admin fee, go on sale at 10am on Wednesday, April 1.

Def Leppard, who have sold over 100 millions albums worldwide, will release their highly-anticipated new record in late 2015.

Whitesnake will release their twelfth studio album, The Purple Album, ahead of their 2015 world tour.
