Def Leppard played show number 11 of The Stadium Tour in Chicago, IL last night with 18 songs performed.

The show took place at the 41,649 capacity Wrigley Field.

The first show in Chicago since July 2018 on the Journey co-headline tour.

The 27th show by the band in this city and second time at this venue.

The first visit here took place in June 1980 at Rosemont Horizon on their very first US tour.

The weather forecast pre-show indicated storms and rain in the early morning and maybe more rain in the after noon.

Surely not again?.

Show #11 - Huge Crowd/No Rain

A packed crowd at Wrigley Field had no delays or rain to deal with as Motley Crue played.

Photos including those by Phil's guitar tech showed the huge crowd and good weather head of Def Leppard's closing performance.

The band actually had earlier than normal time slots with Poison starting at 5:45pm and Motley Crue at 7:25pm.

Def Leppard started their set at around 9:20pm and put on another spectacular show for the massive sold out crowd.

The normal 15 song setlist was played once more.

One fan captured the action up until 'Love Bites' with a brilliant front row live stream.

Normal Setlist

'Fire It Up' and 'Animal' returned to their normal slots of #2 and #3 having been switched up at the previous show in St. Louis.

Motley Crue

The regular 15 song setlist played once more.


Poison played 7 songs again and also play another solo show tonight at Appalachian Wireless Arena in Pikeville, KY.
