Def Leppard’s Vivian Campbell Reveals Cancer Has Returned

vivian-campbell-facebookDef Leppard guitarist Vivian Campbell has revealed that the Hodgkin’s lymphoma that he has been battling since 2013 has returned.

“I’m saddened by the fact that my cancer has returned. However, I’m beyond consolation that its return will prevent me from being able to do my job for a while,” a statement on Campbell’s Facebook page reads.

“I’m still working on a schedule of treatment with my doctors, but I will see you all very soon.

“My apologies.”

Def Leppard is kicking off their North American tour with Styx and Tesla Tuesday. His replacement will likely be Steve Brown (Trixter), who has previously subbed for Campbell.
