Def Leppard played another show on the 2017 North American Tour last night in Las Vegas, NV with 17 songs performed.

The show took place at the 17,157 capacity MGM Grand Garden Arena.

The band last played Las Vegas on 29th October 2014 on the Summer Tour 2014.

The 25th full show the band have played in Las Vegas and third show at this venue.

The first visit was in September 1983 at the Aladdin Theatre during the Pyromania tour.

They returned in November 1987 for an In The Round show on the Hysteria tour at Thomas & Mack Center followed by a second in September 1992 on the Adrenalize tour.

After a ten year gap they came back on the X/Ten tour for their first show at Mandalay Bay Events Center. The first full US show of that tour featuring first ever playing of 'Ring Of Fire' in America.

The Joint At Hard Rock Hotel hosted a show on the same tour in October 2003 with 'When Love & Hate Collide' played for the first time in North America. A return to the city to end the US leg of the tour.

They returned to the same venue on the Rock Of Ages tour in November 2005 before playing two more shows at Mandalay Bay in August 2006 and September 2007. They also played three songs at the VH1 Rock Honors show at Mandalay Bay in May 2006.

The next show took place in April 2008 on the Sparkle Lounge tour at The Pearl at The Palms.

The first two MGM Grand Garden Arena shows took place in September 2009 and September 2011.

The only outdoor show in the city took place in June 2012 at Red Rock Casino Amphitheatre with Poison on the second Rock Of Ages tour.

March/April 2013 saw the band play 11 shows at The Joint At Hard Rock Hotel for the VIVA! Hysteria residency which was filmed and released on CD/DVD later in the same year.

They would return to the same venue in October 2014 for a private show with Steve Brown filling in for Vivian on guitar while he was in hospital.

17 songs were played at last night's show with all three new album songs staying in the set.

All three new album songs were played in Las Vegas for the first time.

Joe Elliott - Pre Rock Of Ages Speech

"Thank you. Thank you very much. Oh well here we are. Look at this place, I keep saying it but seriously it doesn't get old. Ever. Look at it, it's full. It's packed, a lot of people. Remember in the old days when everybody used to get their cigarette lighters out and light up the place. Now it's all cell phones. So here's your chance. Kenji, lights down. Let's see what you can do. Come on. Oh and by the way you don't have to go quiet. We took a photo from the back it will be on the website later this evening. Thank you. Las Vegas. Always a pleasure, you guys have been amazing tonight. A lot of noise going on out there. A lot of noise going on out there. However, do you think you can make maybe just a little bit more.
