Def Leppard announce rescheduled dates

Def Leppard have rescheduled the run of 10 dates they were forced to cancel earlier this month.

The band had to call a halt to their US tour after frontman Joe Elliott was diagnosed with a throat problem which could have resulted in permanent damage if he’d continued to perform live.

Last week, guitarist Viv Campbell reported that the singer needed to “rest for a couple of months.” And they’ll now honour the cancelled shows with a run of gigs in April and May.

Def Lep are playing in support of their self-titled 11th album which was released last year.
