Def Leppard guitarist Vivian Campbell was recently interviewed by 105.7 WROR radio and commented on the upcoming 2016 summer tour.

Vivian talked briefly about Joe's vocal problems, the tour postponement, rescheduled dates and the new Summer tour - possibly featuring REO Speedwagon/Tesla as the other bands.

Vivian again says the band will play the rescheduled shows in May before the main summer tour begins in late June.

The band would have played the last of the postponed February shows tonight in Allentown, PA at the PPL Center. A show which 'may' be rescheduled to 16th May.

105.7 WROR - Vivian Campbell Interview Quotes

Joe Elliott's Vocal Problems

"A doctor stuck a camera down his throat the day we cancelled the last show, postponed the last show rather, and told him that if he didn't stop singing he'd have no career left. So that's the bad news. The good news is that same doctor is equally confident that he does not need surgery of any sort. He just needs rest for a couple months and he should be fine."

US Summer Tour

"So we postponed all those shows. We're rescheduling them for May and we were planning in any event to do another North American tour staring in late June, so we'll be doing that. So we'll do these shows in May and then by late June we'll start up again for what was scheduled."
