DEF LEPPARD guitarist Vivian Campbell, who has been battling Hodgkin’s lymphoma since 2013, has posted the following statement on his Facebook page:
“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.
It is believed that Vivian’a replacement for DEF LEPPARD’s upcoming shows will once again be TRIXTER guitarist Steve Brown, who previously stepped in for Campbell for a couple of dates last fall, including on September 28, 2014 at the pre-game show at the first of last year’s three NFL International Series games when the Oakland Raiders hosted the Miami Dolphins.
