Rock Media: Def Leppard Cancel Tour & Show @ Mohegan Sun.

Def Leppard Cancel Tour including Huge Show at Mohegan Sun

Legendary rock band Def Leppard has announced they’ve had to cancel the remaining dates on their February tour of the United States. It’s an unfortunate end to the tour but the band remains steadfast that this is very much needed for the longevity of the band.

Drummer Rick Allen confirmed on his Twitter account to fans:

“The doctor basically said that if Joe (Elliott) continues to sing without resting his throat for a month he might do permanent damage.”

The postponed shows are as follows:

Feb. 5 – Corpus Christi, TX (American Bank Center Arena)
Feb. 6 – Hidalgo, TX (State Farm Arena)
Feb. 9 – Little Rock, AR (Verizon Arena)
Feb. 10 – Bossier City, LA (CenturyLink Center)
Feb. 13 – Uncasville, CT (Mohegan Sun Arena)
Feb. 14 – Atlantic City, NJ (Boardwalk Hall)
Feb. 16 – Brooklyn, NY (Barclays Center)
Feb. 17 – Allentown, PA (PPL Center)

The most notable show the band has had to cancel is at the Mohegan Sun Arena, which is a high profile casino that has its own arena on-site. The Arena plays host to a steady flow of rock bands throughout the year, and already has the likes of Dropkick Murphys and Duran Duran playing in the coming months.

While the show at Mohegan will certainly be rescheduled and an announcement will be made soon, it’ll be tough for the avid music fans of Connecticut to take. The Mohegan in recent years has transformed itself into a great place to watch live sport, music and comedy – varying its entertainment offerings while also lessening the chances of being financial affected by the surging popularity of online casino portals. With land-based casinos at a disadvantage when it comes to the convenience online platforms offer, and their recent upgrades to incorporate live dealers and HD graphics, the Mohegan relies on shows such as the Def Leppard concert to raise sizeable revenues for its operations. While it certainly won’t put the casino out of business, they will be keen to reschedule the event asap for those die hard Def Leppard who’ve been waiting for this show for a considerable amount of time.
