Def Leppard Tour Kick Off Press Conference Video Goes Online

(hennemusic) Def Leppard kicked off their 2013 summer tour at Hellfest in Clisson, France on June 28, and video of the band's press conference at the event has surfaced.

The festival appearance marked Leppard's first show since guitarist Vivian Campbell revealed that he has been diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma.

"Huge thanks to all of you for your love and support; I'm overwhelmed by the well-wishes," posted the guitarist on June 13. "Can't wait to see some of you at the shows this summer. I just wish we were playing more!"

At Hellfest, Campbell debuted a new close-cropped haircut required by his chemotherapy. "I'm halfway through my treatment with chemo number 6 today," he posted on June 18. "Then home to pack my bag and leave for France tomorrow. I'm very excited to be going back to work." Watch the video here.
