Vivian Campbell's Last In Line will support Def Leppard at the Download Festival in June.

Vivian will perform with his die band Last In Line on the same day as he plays with Def Leppard.

One of over 40 new acts confirmed earlier today for the festival which is Def Leppard's only UK show of 2019. The first time a band member's own side band will have supported Def Leppard.

Def Leppard were confirmed back in October 2018 to headline on Friday 14th June 2019. The opening night of the festival and their second time in this slot.

The festival takes place from 14th to 16th June 2019 at Donington Park in Derby, England.

Slipknot and Toll are the other headliners on Saturday and Sunday.

As with the UK tour in December the full 'Hysteria' album will be played at this show. This means they will be playing two songs debuted in the UK in August 1986 once again at Donington Park - 'Run Riot' and 'Love And Affection'.

The first appearance here came in August 1986 as part of Rick Allen's comeback tour at the old Monsters Of Rock Festival.

They returned in June 2009 as headliners with Rick again receiving en emotional introduction from Joe. A second headline appearance followed just two years later in June 2011 as the Mirrorball world tour started.

Past Def Leppard tour mates Tesla, Whitenake and Slash ft. Myles Kennedy are also playing the festival.
