Def Leppard played show number 18 of The Stadium Tour in Denver, CO last night with 17 songs performed.

The show took place at the 50,398 capacity Coors Field.

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

The 28th show by the band in this city and second time at this venue.

The first visit to the stadium in 2018 was played on the same date of 21st July.

The first visit here took place in June 1980 at the McNichols Arena on their first American tour.

The 12th/13th February 1988 Hysteria In the Round shows were filmed for the In The Round-In Your Face concert video at McNichols Sports Arena with Tesla in support.

Another hot show to end the first part of the tour?. The forecast said yes.

Show #18 - The Sun Sets On Leg One

A massive crowd of around 45,000 people packed the stadium and saw the opening sets by Classless Act, Joan Jett and Poison.

And then it was the turn of Def Leppard and the forecast was right - 32C heat and bright sunshine for the final night of the first leg on The Stadium Tour 2022.

The band were loud and the crowd were also loud prompting another "Unbelievable" from Joe at the end.

The tour started in a thunderstorm with torrential rain and lightning but it ended, for now, with proper summer weather.

And as the set progressed the sun literally set on this tour leg.

Another great display unfolded behind the stage as they moved into the acoustic section.

By the time they got to 'Rock Of Ages' and 'Photograph' the sun was just about set.

And that brought an end to the first leg of 18 shows.

None of which had to be postponed other than one show being cut down by three songs and another delayed.

With an average crowd of about 40,000 or so they have played to around 700,000 fans in the first 18 shows.

The biggest run of stadium shows in their career and actually almost as many shows in big stadiums played in this month than in their first 44 years of touring.

Setlist - The Rock Set

The setlist first introduced in Detroit was played once more for the seventh show in a row.

Referred to by the band as the "rock set" in their most recent behind the scenes video.

As shown on a printed setlist photographed backstage by a fan in Milwaukee the band have also rehearsed 'Mirror Mirror (Look Into My Eyes)' and 'Too late For Love'.

Songs which may be included on the next leg if they decide to mix it up further.

Motley Crue

Motley Crue played their usual 15 song setlist which has been the same since show #2 when they dropped 'Piece Of Your Action' from the opening night.


The tour will sort of carry on for Poison who play later tonight at Harrah's Stir Cove in Council Bluffs, IA for another solo date outside of the main Stadium Tour.

Council Bluffs - played by Def Leppard in 2002 on the X/Ten tour.
