VIVIAN CAMPBELL Talks LAST IN LINE, Battling Cancer And DEF LEPPARD's Las Vegas Residency

TeamRock Radio recently conducted an interview with DEF LEPPARD and LAST IN LINE guitarist Vivian Campbell. The chat can be heard using the SoundCloud widget below.

Campbell, who is currently being treated for Hodgkin's lymphoma, has just completed a short tour with LAST IN LINE, the band featuring Vivian alongside fellow founding DIO members Vinny Appice, Jimmy Bain and Claude Schnell, plus singer Andrew Freeman. The guitarist has been receiving chemotherapy for four months, with two months of treatment remaining.

"I feel fortunate that my cancer sent me an alarm call in the form of 'the cough that wouldn't quit,'" Campbell said in a statement this past June.

DEF LEPPARD last month completed a short tour that started June 21 at the Hellfest festival in France and ended July 17 in Canandaigua, New York.

DEF LEPPARD's recent Las Vegas extravaganza will hit the silver screen for two nights in October. NCM Fathom Events together with AEG Live and Network Live are bringing DEF LEPPARD "Viva! Hysteria" concert to over 250 theaters across the country with a full front-to-back performance of 1987's multi-platinum "Hysteria" album — along with a healthy dose of the band's greatest hits. Tickets for the screenings are available at participating theater box offices and online at www.FathomEvents.com.
