    Def Leppard is hitting the road again this summer, this time with Poison and Cheap Trick and one of the stops brings them all to Dallas.

    But frontman Joe Elliott says it might be their last tour for a bit.
     
    "This will be our fifth year in a row where we've toured the summer in the states, and I seriously do think that it's time for us to not do it next year, because I'm a firm believer in you don't want to do it too much -- people start taking you for granted," Elliott said in an interview Wednesday.

    Some people might be surprised to find Poison and Def Leppard on the same bill, after Elliott was perceived as having made disparaging remarks about the glam metal band last year. But he said the controversy was blown out of proportion.
     
    "The supposed fight that we had with Poison wasn't a fight at all. It was taken out of context by a foreign journalist," he said. "I've spoken with (Poison's) Bret Michaels, and he totally gets that it was taken totally out of context, and we don't have a problem with any of these guys, never have been."

    Elliott also says he'd like the band to start recording another album. Their last record was 2008's "Songs From the Sparkle Lounge."
     
    Tickets for the summer tour go on sale next week.
