Def Leppard 2016.
Pic By Chele Drappel

Def Leppard played their second Hysteria On The High Seas cruise show last night and the first photos have been sent in.

The second and final concert by the band on the cruise took place last night in the ship's Pantheon Theatre.

Unfortunately Joe's sickness, as mentioned yesterday, has turned out to be laryngitis. Something which has of course affected him on past tours including the Pyromania tour in 1983.

Joe announced before the performance that he was not able to perform and he promised everyone at the show free tickets to a future Def Leppard concert.

Chele has submitted some more photos from this show and reports that Phil took lead vocals on two songs.

View all the photos on the show page.

The lead vocals were then shared between some of the other cruise artists.

Last In Line's Andrew Freeman took leads vocals on two songs. Both Eric Martin and Kip Winger shared vocal duties on two songs with Switch 625 played as normal by Rick, Sav, Phil and Vivian.

This is the very first time a full band Def Leppard show has been performed without Joe Elliott on lead vocals.

Also the first time Phil has fronted the band on his own without Joe. Previous performances with Phil singing lead on 'Miss You In A Heartbeat' always featured Joe onstage on either piano or acoustic guitar/backing vocals.

As shown below the band had a simple black backdrop behind them with a small DEF LEPPARD logo on a video screen above Rick's kit. Due to the small stage the back line was also very simple with no major production elements used other than the various guitar amps.

The cruise ship MSC Divina is now heading back to port in Miami, FL and was due to arrive back at 7am ET on the 25th. Obviously the sad events overnight may have changed things but concert events are still going ahead later tonight.

Fan photos and reviews from any past tour can be submitted - Here
