Allen shared a photo of himself wearing a very cool Joan Jett and the Blackhearts t-shirt. He captioned the photo, “Thank you all so very much for all of your love and support over the last month. I am still recovering and getting my mind and body ready for the upcoming Def Leppard tour. Just wanted to say hi and let you know, There Will Be Rock!”

As previously reported, Allen was standing near the valet area at the Four Seasons in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. smoking a cigarette. He was in town for a March 12 show with Def Leppard at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.
