DEF LEPPARD 2019 Tour In Hinwil, Switzerland (Show Report)

Def Leppard 2019. Screenshot

Def Leppard played a show on the 2019 European tour last night in Hinwil, Switzerland with 16 songs performed.

The show took place at the 28,000 capacity Autobahnkreisel Betzholz for the Rock The Ring Festival.

The 7th show of the Def Leppard 2019 European tour.

The first time at this festival on a bill that also featured Whitesnake and Tesla.

A 16 song setlist was performed with the show starting at 11pm local time and not ending until 12:30am.

And as you can see below following some rain there were very dramatic skies above the festival site.

The first visit to Hinwil and 12th overall visit to Switzerland.

Previous Appearances In Switzerland

A return to the venue played in 1983 during the YEAH! tour.

Supported by local act SIDEBURN.

A return to the country after ten years on the X/Ten tour.

Supported by Skid Row and Ricky Warwick.

A show on the Slang tour supported by Terrorvision.

A second visit to the Hallenstadion on the Adrenalize tour supported by Ugly Kid Joe and a return to Lausanne.

The end of show photo taken here was used on the cover of the 1994 'Action' single.

Two Hysteria tour shows supported by M.S.G.

Two headline shows by the band during the two Pyromania European tours.

A second show on the High 'n' Dru tour this time as support to Judas Preist.

The first visit here during the support tour with Rainbow.

2019 Setlist/Staging

A 16 song setlist with 'Foolin'' again left out. The reduction of set time might be due to playing two "2 nights in row" shows on 19th/290th and then 22nd/23rd.

'Man Enough' was played for the very first time in Hinwil and Switzerland.

The same stage set up as in Prague with all video content and a Thrust Stage.

Other Bands

Whitesnake, Tesla and UK melodic rock band FM played before Def Leppard at this show.

The event was opened by Inglorious at 5:30pm who apparently survived a nasty car accident on their way to the venue.
