Def Leppard 2018. By frankiecr_

Def Leppard played another show on the 2018 Hysteria tour earlier today in Perth, Australia with 17 songs performed.

The show took place at the 15,500 capacity RAC Arena.

The first show of the Australia/New Zealand leg of the 'Hysteria & More' tour. The concert ended within the last few hours and was played at 9:10pm local time (AWST).

The band's first time in Perth since 21st November 2015 during the World Tour 2015.

The 5th appearance by the band in this city and first time at this venue which was opened in November 2012. It was known as Perth Arena until September 2018 when it became known as RAC Arena.

The second largest capacity arena the band have played in Australia after the November 2008 show at Acer Arena in Sydney.

The first visit to the city was in July 1992 at Perth Entertainment Centre. An In The Round show which opened the Australia/NZ Adrenalize tour. The first national tour of the country.

They would not return to Perth until October 2008 on the Sparkle Lounge tour at Members Equity Stadium with Cheap Trick.

The same venue was played in October 2011 as nib Stadium during the Mirrorball tour with Heart.

The band then performed 'Two Steps Behind' acoustically at the Perth Telethon the night after on Channel 7 TV.

The November 2015 show saw the band play at the scenic Red Hill Auditorium/Amphitheatre venue for the first time alongside Live and Baby Animals.


The 'Hysteria' album was played in full for the very first time in Perth and Australia.

'Don't shoot Shotgun', 'Run Riot', 'Excitable' and 'Love And Affection' were all played for the first time in Perth.

'Gods Of War' had been in the set during the 1992 'Adrenalize' tour show here.

The full Hysteria album was followed by five songs again as in Japan. 'Make Love Like A Man' was played as song #13 for only the second time in 2018.

The full staging last seen in Los Angeles, CA and throughout the North American tour was used here. The same video countdown was followed by the now modified Hysteria album/Excitable intro but now follow by Phil starting Woman on the Thrust stage as the screens rise with the city name on them (see photo below).

Scorpions played an 11 song setlist.
