Def Leppard - Def Leppard Star Elliott's Father Dies

The family emergency that brought Def Leppard's U.S. tour to a sudden halt has been revealed - singer Joe Elliott's father has died.
The British rockers scrapped a show with Heart in Cincinnati, Ohio on Thursday (07Jul11), revealing only that the ill health of a bandmate's family member had forced them to head back to England.
They also postponed a weekend (09Jul11) show in Bristow, Virginia and scrapped dates in Wantagh, New York on 12 July, and Holmdel, New Jersey on 13 July.
And late on Friday (08Jul11) it was revealed Elliott's father had died in a U.K. hospital after a long illness.
No more details were available as WENN went to press.
Extra shows in New York and Illinois, scheduled for next week (beg11Jul11), have now also been cancelled.
