Def Leppard guitarist Vivian Campbell has bad news it seems his cancer is back.

On his Facebook page, he says, “I’m saddened by the fact that my cancer has returned. However, I’m beyond consolation that its return will prevent me from being able to do my job for a while. I’m still working on a schedule of treatment with my doctors, but I will see you all very soon. My apologies.”

Campbell underwent stem-cell surgery last fall for the lymphoma and had to miss a few shows.

Def Leppard start the North American leg of their tour Tuesday in Tampa with special guests Styx and Tesla. They did a warm-up show Saturday in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Def Leppard rock Australia this November.
