Vivian Campbell/Last In Line To Tour US/UK/EUR From October To December

Tuesday, 26th July 2016

Last In Line 2016.

Def Leppard guitarist Vivian Campbell will tour with Last In Line this October to December in the US, UK and Europe.

Drummer Vinny Appice mentioned the news during an interview conducted on 14th July.

Vinny said that Last In Line will tour the USA some time in October on the US West Coast before heading to the UK for some headline dates and with Saxon on their European tour. They also hope to do a full US tour in 2017 and play European festivals.

The band had briefly mentioned UK dates at the end of June without giving any details.

Listen to the full 13 minute interview below. LIL part starts at 6:24 mins.

Vinny talked about his current plans, DIO remasters and went on to discuss Last In Line's future touring plans for 2016 and 2017.

Last In Line have been quietly announced to play at least 9 shows in Europe throughout November and December supporting Saxon alongside Girlschool on their 'Battering Ram' tour.

The first show is in Tilburg, Holland on 11th November with Last In Line listed as support alongside Girlschool. It appears they will be with them in France/Holland and a few other countries in November/December but not at every show.

The full list of Saxon's 27 European dates is shown below with Last In Line confirmations indicated from venue and/or ticket sites. Some venues do not yet list the support acts.

Last In Line have yet to confirm or announce their schedule which will likely include the US and UK headline shows mentioned in the interview. Other than the Frontiers Rock Festival show in Italy in April 2016 the band's last shows in the UK or Europe were in August 2013.

Vivian's touring is of course being worked around his treatment schedule which may account for Last In Line not appearing on all dates.

Vinny Appice - 14th July 2016 Interview Quotes

Last In Line

"I'm also doing the Last In Line band with Vivian Campbell which is the original DIO band. So we're playing all these songs. We're going out at the end of October/November to actually play these songs. So it's a cool thing you know."

Jimmy Bain's Death

"Yeah and we did a number of gigs with Jimmy and we had to record that album and we're all proud of that album. Jimmy was proud. He didn't get to see it. Maybe he did, who knows what happens when you pass you know. But it got a great response and sold pretty damn good. So it's fun playing these old songs and seeing the reaction of the audience."

Last In Line Touring

"Well what's gonna happen is we're going to do some dates on the West Coast at the end of October. And then we're gonna go over to Europe and do about a month there with Saxon. Saxon and a couple of other bands and a couple of dates on our own and a festival or two in there."

2017 Touring

"And then next year we'll be around because the schedule has opened up for Viv more and we hope to do a good tour of the US too. Because we haven't really played you know we only played a lot out in California and a couple of festivals. Yeah we did Rocklahoma. We did a festival in Japan. And the rest they were far and few between. So we haven't really gone out and bombarded the audience with this yet. You know and a lot of people can't wait for us to come to their cities. So it looks like next year we'll be able to do that. And then we'll be able to hit all the big festivals in Europe too."

"And the band kicks ass. It's so much fun to play together. We have a great time on and off stage. It's just a real pleasure playing. Especially with Viv again he's such a great guy and he's having so much fun playing this stuff and so am I you know."

"Yeah we're not doing this to just out and try to make money. We're doing this because we wanna do it and Viv is totally into this and totally enjoying playing this stuff. His does all his old solos. He's burning again. He just plays so great you know. So it's a great band and if you see us you'll see that we're all having a great time on stage. That's the important thing. It's so great to work with Viv again."
