Def Leppard guitarist Vivian Campbell is battling cancer again. He wrote on Facebook over the weekend:
“I’m saddened by the fact that my cancer has returned. However, I’m beyond consolation that its return will prevent me from being able to do my job for a while. I’m still working on a schedule of treatment with my doctors, but I will see you all very soon. My apologies.”
Amazingly, he will only miss the first few shows of Dep Leppard’s summer tour with Styx and Tesla. His treatments have been scheduled around the rest of the concert dates. The trek kicks off tomorrow night in Florida.
The closest dates to Winnipeg on this tour is August 7th at Sturgis in South Dakota and August 28th in Grand Forks.
