Def Leppard guitarist Vivian Campbell will be back on tour with the band in Birmingam, AL this Saturday.

Rick Allen had answered a fan question last night on twitter saying that Vivian would be back in "a few days".

Vivian later updated fans himself with some positive news. His doctors say he can avoid radiation treatment and be able to play all live shows from Birmingham, AL onwards.

Vivian announced the return of his Hodgkin's Lymphoma on 20th June and said he was sad to be missing shows.

Trixter guitarist Steve Brown will stand in for Vivian in Tampa, FL tonight and West palm Beach, FL on the 25th meaning Vivian will have only missed three shows.

"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!"
