4 Years Ago DEF LEPPARD Postpone ORLANDO, Florida Concert
Def Leppard were forced to postpone their show in Orlando, FL on this day in January 2016 due to Joe Elliott's vocal issues.
The show was first announced along with 12 others in October 2015 and had been due to take place at the Amway Center.
It followed the postponement of the Greensboro, NC show that was due to have taken place on 27th January.
Joe began to suffer vocal issues during the Hysteria On The High Seas cruise. This affected the Storytellers acoustic concert on the 22nd and also meant he had to sit out the electric concert on the 23rd.
The news was only announced a few hours before show time. Band members later revealing that Joe had to see a specialist before the soundcheck and was told to rest his voice for a month.
