Thé Lau, best known as lead singer of Dutch band The Scene, passed away in his home in Amsterdam on Tuesday night. He had been terminally ill with cancer for some time. Thé Lau’s management announced the 62 year old singer’s death on Wednesday.
After Thé Lau announced that he was sick, he and his band booked a farewell tour through the Netherlands and Belgium. The band played at Pinkpop, in the Heineken Music Hall in Amsterdam, the Lotto Arena in Antwerp and the Ancienne Belgique in Brussels.
Over the weekend DEF LEPPARD guitarist VIVIAN CAMPBELL stated that his cancer had returned and he would be standing aside to recieve treatment. Today Vivian has just posted the great news that he will be able to rejoin the band's tour this weekend.
From Viv: "So, so happy to report that I've dodged the bullet of radiation. I was due to start a course that would have sidelined me for most of the first leg of the US tour, but my brilliant doctors have steered me towards an alternative course of treatment that will enable me to rejoin the tour this Saturday night in Birmingham Alabama. Furthermore, they've tailored future treatments to accommodate the tour schedule so I won't have to miss any more shows. I'm so happy and so indebted to the wonderful physicians who have worked so hard on my behalf to make this happen. See you Saturday!"
