Def Leppard Postpone All 10 February Tour Dates Due To Joe's Illness

Def Leppard 2015.
US Tour 2015/2016

Def Leppard have been forced to postpone all upcoming tour dates in February due to Joe Elliott's illness.

Rick Allen had confirmed yesterday that Joe was told by a doctor that he needed to rest his voice for at least one month in order to recover from his laryngitis. If not he may permanently damage his voice.

The band and all venues have today confirmed the postponements.

13 shows with Styx and Tesla were announced in October 2015 for January and February.

The first of these in Greensboro, NC was postponed earlier this week.

Saturday night's show in Orlando, FL was postponed at the last minute only a few hours before show time.

The last time the band had to cancel or postpone this many shows was in October 2009. All 23 shows running from 22nd October to 28th November 2009 were cancelled on the 16th October.

A statement at the time said - "...we don't take cancelling shows lightly, but unfortunately life's commitments need to be the priority.". Joe later revealed it was he who wanted the tour scrapped so he could be with his wife as she prepared for the birth of their son (born in December that year).
