The 2016 Def Leppard Summer Tour/New Music?

"Yeah. Well, we toured last summer and the new Def Leppard album only came out at the end of October. So we only got to play one new song in the USA."

"Right towards the end. the last couple of weeks of that tour. So we will be playing. I would say at least three from the new album on this tour."

His Health

"Yeah it's an ongoing battle you know. Three rounds of chemo, stem cell transplant. It kept coming back. Hodgkin's Lymphoma is my cancer. Which, if you're gonna get cancer, that's the one to get. If you get to tick that box. Tick that one."

"And I'm currently doing a course of treatment called Immunotherapy. I've been doing that since June last year. Part of a Phase II clinical trial. I'm taking a drug called Pembrolizumab which is what cured Jimmy Carter's melanoma. It's the wonder drug of the new monoclonal antibodies that are being tested for various cancers and we're starting to see good results with it."

"So minimal side effects as you can tell. I'm very healthy Little bit too healthy perhaps."
