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

The show took place at the 37,731 capacity Fenway Park.

The first show of leg 3 of the tour and the 7th stadium show with Cheap Trick again in support.

The band last played Boston on 22nd June 2016 on the Summer Tour 2016.

The 16th show the band have played in this city (Mansfield or Boston).

The first visit was in August 1980 at Orpheum Theater during their first ever US tour supporting Judas Priest.

They would not return again until July 1988 for an outdoor show on the Hysteria tour at Great Woods (the former name of the Xfinity Center).

The next three shows all took place at this same venue in 1993, 1996 and 2000.

The 2016 show was the 12th time at the Xfinity Theatre which has been played under four different names.

Only three shows have been played indoors in Boston. The first show in 1980, a promo show at Fleet Center in 2002 and a show with Bryan Adams in 2005 at Agganis Arena

Setlist

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

Joe Elliott - Pre-Rock Of Ages Speech

"I think the word I'm looking for is un-f**king-believable!. We have had an amazing evening here. Can we do this again one day?. It's a great place to play. Amazing people. You've made so much noise tonight. It's just frightening actually. But however, do you think you can make a little bit more?. Just a little bit more. For the boy at the back. Stand up Rick Allen!. As ever he will introduce this one for ya."

Joe Elliott - End Of Show Speech
