DEF LEPPARD x JOURNEY Tour In ST. LOUIS, MO (Show Report)
Def Leppard played another show with Journey on the 2018 North American tour last night in St. Louis, MO with 16 songs performed.
The show took place at the 45,538 capacity Busch Stadium.
The 8th stadium show of the tour with Cheap Trick again in support.
The band last played St. Louis onon the Summer Tour 2017.
The 19th show the band have played in St. Louis, MO and first time at this venue.
The first visit here took place in June 1980 at The Checkerdome as support to Ted Nugent on their first American tour.
They returned in October 1981 to play the Kiel Auditorium with Blackfoot.
Their first headline show in the city took place in August 1983 during the Pyromania tour at The Checkerdome.
Two "One-End" shows followed in February and October 1988 at the St. Louis Arena on the Hysteria tour. The In The Round stage was arranged at one end of the venue due to weight restriction issues. The February show was filmed by an audience member.
An In The Round show was played at the same arena in December 1992 on the Adrenalize tour with their new lighter stage rig.
The first show at the Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre took place in August 1993 on the same tour under its original name of Riverport Performing Arts Center.
This started a run of seven shows played at the venue under four different names in 1993, 1996, 2000, 2006, 2007, 2009 and 2011 by which time it was called Verizon Wireless Amphitheater.
The August 2012 Rock Of Ages tour show with Poison saw them return indoors at the Chaifetz Arena.
The Verizon Wireless Amphitheater was played again in August 2014 before it was changed to the current name of Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre prior to the 2016 show. That venue was played 11 times between 1993 to 2017.
Last night's show was sold out with a full moon over the stadium as the band played.
'When Love & Hate Collide' was played for the first time in St. Louis.
