Tai/Classic Rock 105.1 - Vivian Campbell Interview Quotes

2018 North American Tour/Rehearsals

"Yes it is a big big year for us. We're starting rehearsals in about a week or so. We're gonna rehearse in New York. Then we start, we have 60 something shows with Journey across North America doing a co-headline tour. Very excited."

2018 Hysteria Tour/World Tour

"Yeah, like I said, we have 60 something shows with Journey. All through North America. Some Canadian shows and that's takes us through to early October [that's what he meant to say...]. And then we go to Hawaii for a couple of shows and then Japan, Australia, New Zealand. Over to Ireland and England and we finish in London on December 18th. Right before Christmas."

Second last In Line Album

"I have three shows left this weekend with Last In Line and then I go on to the Leppard rehearsals. So that'll be it for this year for me. But we have a new album that we have in the can that's coming out early 2019."

"And I just like to stay busy you know. It really...I like to exercise all the muscles you know and that's a rally guitar centric gig for me. The Leppard thing, while the guitars are challenging, the vocals are the strongest part of the Leppard gig for me. And you know you are what you do and I just feel so fortunate that I have been able to live my entire adult life as a professional musician. And I just enjoy doing it you know."
