Def Leppard fans can calm their “Hysteria” as the band finally prepares for their anticipated tour.
The band will be touring this spring, despite having to postpone 10 shows earlier this winter due to Joe Elliott’s health scare. Known for the songs Animal, Rock of Ages, and Pour Some Sugar On Me among other hits, the band was facing an unclear future. At first Elliot was told he had to stop singing or permanently end his career.
Fortunately, Def guitarist Vivian Campbell told Billboard that Elliot “should be fine” after a period of rest. Campbell himself is receiving treatment for lymphoma with good results. He tells the magazine that the band has taken the health scares as a push to complete more music “a hell of a lot sooner” than they did after the last album.
The North American tour starts in June after the success of their last self titled album. Already the album is what Campbell calls the “strongest record” he’s made while playing with Def Leppard. Some tracks include Let’s Go, Man Enough, and Dangerous, and hit No. 1 on the rock charts. Now fans can look forward to hearing it live.
