Over the weekend DEF LEPPARD guitarist VIVIAN CAMPBELL stated that his cancer had returned and he would be standing aside to recieve treatment. Today Vivian has just posted the great news that he will be able to rejoin the band's tour this weekend.
From Viv: "So, so happy to report that I've dodged the bullet of radiation. I was due to start a course that would have sidelined me for most of the first leg of the US tour, but my brilliant doctors have steered me towards an alternative course of treatment that will enable me to rejoin the tour this Saturday night in Birmingham Alabama. Furthermore, they've tailored future treatments to accommodate the tour schedule so I won't have to miss any more shows. I'm so happy and so indebted to the wonderful physicians who have worked so hard on my behalf to make this happen. See you Saturday!"
Vivian's past 2 updates:
"I'm overwhelmed by the support and well-wishes that everyone has sent to me. Thank you all so very much - it means a lot to me."
"I'm saddened by the fact that my cancer has returned. However, I'm beyond consolation that it's return will prevent me from being able to do my job for a while. I’m still working on a schedule of treatment with my doctors, but I will see you all very soon. My apologies."
GET WELL SOON VIVIAN!
