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

The show took place at the 11,300 capacity Adelaide Entertainment Centre.

The second 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 (ACDT).

The band's first time in Adelaide since 18th October 2011 during the Mirorball World Tour.

The fourth appearance by the band in this city and fourth time at this venue.

The first appearance here was in July 1992 for an In The Round show on the Adrenalize tour at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre.

They would not return to the venue until the 2nd November 2008 on the Songs From The Sparkle Lounge tour.

Rick Allen celebrated his 45th birthday at that show with the crowd singing to him before 'Two Steps Behind'.

That show also featured a rare playing of Songs From The Sparkle Lounge album track 'Go'.

The last show here would take place in October 2011 on the Mirrorball tour where 'Gods Of War' would be played here for the second time after 1992. After today's show it has been played more times in Adelaide than any other Australian city.


The 'Hysteria' album was played in full for the very first time in Adelaide.

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

The full Hysteria album was followed by five songs again. 'Action' was played as song #13 and for the first time in Adelaide.

As seen in the video below the intro didn't quite go according to plan. 'Adelaide' did not appear of the movable screens as it rose up during the start of 'Women'. They came on as they got to the top of the lighting rig and live images of Phil appeared.

Craig Csongrady from Australian band B.B. Steal attended the show and is picture below with Phil and Vivian. B.B. Steal opened for the band on the 1992 Australian Adrenalize tour and had many songs produced by Phil and Pete Woodroffe.
