Def Leppard postponed its remaining winter tour dates, including the band's upcoming Lafayette show at the Cajundome.

The band was slated to play a show on Wednesday, Feb. 3, but the show will be postponed due to illness, said Def Leppard spokeswoman Carleen Donova. Bands Styx and Tesla were Def Leppard's opening act for the 50-city North American tour.

New dates for the postponed show will be announced soon, Donovan said.
