Def Leppard 2012. SLC 2012 By Brett

Def Leppard played the first show of the Rock Of Ages tour in Salt Lake City, UT on this day in 2012.

The show took place at the 19,500 capacity USANA Amphitheatre.

A venue where most of the 2011 'Mirrorball (Live & More)' album had been recorded.

The tour had been first announced on 9th March 2012 following months of rumours which were initially started by Poison frontman Bret Michaels.

The tour featured Poison and Lita Ford as the opening acts and tied in with the release of the 'Rock Of Ages' movie starring Tom Cruise and featuring two Lep songs.

The second tour to have this title with the first taking place in 2005 in support of the Rock Of Ages The Definitive Collection album.

The 43 date tour was the second straight US summer tour following the year off in 2010.

The first leg of the tour ran until 22nd July and consisted of 20 shows. The second leg of 23 shows began on 9th August and ended on 15th September in Santa Barbara, CA.

The band would return to Mexico for two shows in Monterrey and Mexico City. Their first in the country since November 2005 on the first Rock Of Ages tour.

The band had warmed up for the tour with two promo events on 6th June for YouTube Presents and then on 8th June at the Rock Of Ages movie premiere.
