Def Leppard took a few minutes out of their tour schedule for a memorable photo op yesterday, posing for pictures with students from the Arkansas School for the Deaf.

Little Rock's KFSM reports that the meeting was the result of an online petition that originally sought to secure a school visit from the band prior to their concert at the city's Verizon Arena. "The mascot of the Arkansas School for the Deaf is the Leopards," wrote organizer Cary Tyson. "What better place for a band photo?"

Although the group's tour schedule got them in town too late to visit the campus, they agreed to meet with some of the students — who ended up bringing a replica of the scoreboard. After posing for pictures, Def Leppard thanked the Leopards for their visit on the band's Twitter account.

Def Leppard's Little Rock stop came near the start of the band's spring and summer touring activity, which kicked off May 2 with a show in Pensacola. This year's package tour sees Lep sharing a bill with REO Speedwagon and Tesla, and is booked through early October. Check out a complete list of dates below.
