Def Leppard Make Emotional Live Return

(Rock News Desk) Def Leppard frontman Joe Elliott admits his first show after the death of his dad was a difficult experience and he's thanked his fans for supporting him while he was "off his game."

Joe Senior died on July 7 at the age of 81 after a long illness. He'd persuaded his son not to postpone his planned tour so Elliott Junior hit the road until he was called to his father's deathbed, leading to the postponement of some concerts.

But Def Leppard were back in action this week, and Elliott has acknowledged the support of his followers during his difficult time. "Last night was the first show I've ever done without a father, and can I say to the people of Cincinnati, Ohio: 'Thank you for making it that little bit easier to deal with.'," He says. "I'll admit I ran out of gas I had nothing left to give. It was emotional, but it was over 100 degrees on stage too, which didn't help. more on this story
