Former DIO and current DEF LEPPARD guitarist Vivian Campbell will perform a couple of songs with Los Angeles glam-metal jokesters STEEL PANTHER this coming Monday, May 28 at the House Of Blues in West Hollywood, California. Vivian says, “Those guys are great and I’m really looking forward to playing with them again.”
Vivian previously performed DEF LEPPARD‘s “Rock Of Ages” and DIO‘s “Rainbow In The Dark” with STEEL PANTHER at the House Of Blues in Anaheim, California in January. Video footage of his appearance can be seen below.
Campbell revealed late last month that he is planning to join forces with three other original DIO members to play “some gigs” that will see the musicians performing material from the early DIO records that Campbell appeared on. Campbell, Vinny Appice (drums), Jimmy Bain (bass) and Claude Schnell (keyboards) will be accompanied by singer Andrew Freeman, who has previously fronted HURRICANE and LYNCH MOB.
