Def Leppard have rehearsed We Belong from the last self-titled studio album ahead of the second Las Vegas residency.

The rehearsals of this song were filmed for the latest backstage highlights video from the show in Ottawa, ON, Canada.

A new video has been posted to the band's YouTube channel which features the band playing 'We Belong' just before the 1 minute mark.

As mentioned fans recently revealed the band had played 'Billy's Got A Gun' and three other rarely performed songs during soundcheck at various Canadian shows.

The others being 'Now', 'Paper Sun' and 'Slang'.

Shown below are the rare songs so far revealed as possible setlist additions in Las Vegas. As with previous tours songs rehearsed in soundcheck do not always make the show but these all seem likely to be played at at least some of the 12 shows.

The Sin City Residency was announced on 13th February with 12 shows to be played in Las Vegas in August and September.
