Def Leppard played a short set for the iHeartRadio Music Festival last night in Las Vegas, NV with 5 songs performed.

The show took place at the 20,000 capacity T-Mobile Arena.

A short performance as part of the annual two day iHeart Radio Music Festival.

The first time the band have played this event which features mostly pop acts as well as a mix of country and rap artists.

The band followed Miley Cyrus on stage on a bill that also featured Chance The Rapper, Mumford & Sons, Alicia Keys, H.E.R. and the Zac Brown Band who have recently been covering 'PSSOM' at their own shows.

The performance was broadcast live online in the USA via CWTV but was delayed by about 20 minutes or so after Miley Cyrus overran her set.

Joe wore the jacket that magician Criss Angel gave him during the recent residency.

A return to Las Vegas for the band after the 12 show Sin City Residency ended on 7th September. Vivian visited the city again last week for a show with Last In Line.

The 38th time overall that the band have played in Las Vegas which is now their most played city in North America.


A short five song setlist was played.

Four songs from 'Hysteria' followed the opener 'Promises'.

Joe dedicated 'PSSOM' to Miley Cyrus who was watching the performance in the crowd after her set. Before 'Hysteria' he dedicated the song to late musicians Eddie Money and The Cars front man Ric Ocasek who both passed away last week.
