DEF LEPPARD x JOURNEY 2018 Tour In DETROIT, MI (Show Report)
Def Leppard played another show with Journey on the 2018 North American tour last night in Detroit, MI with 16 songs performed.
The show took place at the 41,297 capacity Comerica Park baseball stadium.
The third of ten stadium shows with support from The Pretenders.
The band last played Detroit onon the Summer Tour 2016.
The 24th show the band have played in this city and the first time at this venue.
The first visit here took place at the same venue in August 1981 supporting Ozzy Osbourne during the High 'n' Dry tour. There is no known date in Detroit or Clarkston for 1980 (that has yet been found).
The next six visits all took place indoors starting with two sold out headline shows at Joe Louis Arena in August 1983 on the Pyromania tour.
They would return there in November 1987 for an In the Round show on the Hysteria tour before two more shows on the same tour in September 1988 at The Palace of Auburn Hills.
The Palace of Auburn Hills would host a fourth In the Round show on the Adrenalize tour in October 1992 before their return to "Pine Knob" in July 1993.
Before another show there in July 1996 they would tape a playback performance on stage for Top Of The Pops.
A further 9 shows have taken place at the venue which since 2003 has been played under its current name.
In between shows here the band have also played at Michigan State Fair Grounds (1999), a return to Joe Louis Arena (2008) and the NHL Face-Off Rocks show at Fox Theatre, also in 2008.
The 2016 show at DTE Energy Music Theatre was filmed for the 'And There Will Be A Next Time...Live From Detroit' DVD/Blu-ray/CD.
Starting at 7:25pm last night's show was played mostly in bright sunshine with Joe wearing sunglasses.
