Phil Collen is living the dream, despite the occasional nightmarish moments.

The guitarist and his band, Def Leppard, are currently on one of North America’s biggest tours – a headlining celebration of ’80s rock decadence with Motley Crue, Poison and Joan Jett and the Black Hearts.

The Stadium Tour 2022who makes his way through Lucas Oil Stadium August 16 has had a few tough times since the start of June – major storms in Atlanta and Washington, DC, Crüe drummer Tommy Lee limited by broken ribs, Poison singer Bret Michaels was hospitalized before a show in Nashville.

In an interview with IndyStar, Collen recalled having to cancel a show in North Carolina due to a stadium roof exploding after “almost like a mini tornado” blew up.
