Def Leppard and Motley Crue played a show on The World Tour 2023 last night in Buenos Aires, Argentina with 17 songs performed.

The show took place at the 10,000 capacity Parque Sarmiento.

The 7th show of The World Tour 2023.

The first time at this venue.

The final night of the main tour leg in South America.

Last Night In South America/So f**king Special

The seventh show of The World Tour and tenth of the year so far.

Also the last night of the 7 date South America/Latin American tour leg.

Apparently some locals objected to this park being used for the show but 10,000 fans turned up for the sold out concert (according to local media).

'Take What You Want' greeted the Buenos Aires crowd at 8:30pm at the start of another 90 minutes of rock!.

As promised once again by a certain drummer in his Pre-Show video message (See below).

The band were greeted by one of the loudest crowds of the tour who continued to chant between songs.

And Joe thanked them at the end for making this last night "So f**king special!".

First Outdoor Show In Argentina

The fourth ever show in Argentina and like the previous three it was played in the capital city of Buenos Aires.

This one played farther away from the city centre than the previous ones in the Saavedra neighbourhood.

The first known rock show to be played here by International bands since shows by Green Day and Megadeth in the late 90s.

It may have been a slow show to follow online but as you can see from the video clips once again another triumphant and rocking show played to a sold out crowd.


The 17 song setlist was played once again.

A Return To Buenos Aires

The band's first show in Buenos Aires since September 2017.

That show took place at the 7,536 capacity Estadio Luna Park.

Coming 20 years after their last visit.

That first visit took place in April 1997 during the Slang tour.

The next Def Leppard show takes place on 12th March in Hollywood, FL.

A One-Night Only Intimate show before The World Tour proper starts up again in Sheffield, where it all began in July 1978.
