The latest and last round of artist announcements officially completes the lineup for this year’s event. The newly-announced artists feature Jimmy Page and Def Leppard’s lead vocalist Joe Elliott, who were announced alongside Philippine superstars Sarah Geronimo and Bamboo.

This will be the first appearance in Japan by Jimmy Page in 20 years, since the Jimmy Page & Robert Plant World Tour brought him through Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya, and Fukuoka in 1996.

The night promises to be one of epic proportions, with rock legends joining forces for jam sessions to be performed live. The event also brings two of the world’s most influential guitarists, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page, to Japan to appear at the Classic Rock Awards.

Def Leppard’s eponymous last album reached No. 1 in the Japanese weekly rock chart in just three days. The band's 2015/2016 world tour kicked off in Tokyo on November 9, 2015. Def Leppard has sold more than 100 million albums worldwide and remains one of the world’s best-loved live acts.

In addition to this list of high-profile stars, Jeff Beck has announced that he will be assembling his own special band of musicians to accompany him to Japan to perform at this year’s Classic Rock Awards. Jeff Beck’s band includes an all-star cast of members featuring the brothers Dean and Robert DeLeo of Stone Temple Pilots on guitar and bass.

His band on the night will also be backed by guitarist Tommy Henriksen of US-based supergroup Hollywood Vampires, and Korn drummer Ray Luzier.
