Def Leppard played another show with Journey on the 2018 North American tour last night in Sunrise, FL with 16 songs performed.

The show took place at the 19,119 capacity BB&T Center.

The band last played Sunrise on 29th January 2016 on the Summer Tour 2016.

The fourth show the band have played in this city.

The first visit here was the Zeta Fest 99 show in July 1999 when they headlined a radio sponsored event in a minor league baseball stadium.

The band also opened a US tour leg on 29th January in Florida during the Adrenalize tour. The last runs of In The Round shows started in St. Petersburg, FL in on the same date in 1993.

The January 2016 show at this venue was the first attempted concert after Joe's vocal issues on the Hysteria Cruise. Jeff Keith from Tesla had to help out on lead vocals for the encore as the band played a short set. Joe's voice had given out which led to the postponement/cancellation of several shows before the tour was re-started in May/June 2016.

Luckily no such issues affected last night's show.


'When Love & Hate Collide' and 'Man Enough' were played for the first time in Sunrise.
