Def Leppard played another show on The World Tour 2023 last night in Fargo, ND with 17 songs performed.

The show took place at the 19,000 capacity FargoDome.

The first show in this city since July 2018.

The fourth appearance at this venue.

Back indoors.


After an outdoor solo show in Sturgis this was a short (by American standards) trip up to North Dakota of around 470 miles.

A return to Fargo and the FargoDome arena.

A smaller capacity show than the stadiums and technically the first ever arena show played together by Def Leppard and Motley Crue in North America.

The previous indoor shows being either at the Hard Rock Live or in large domes and/or stadiums with roofs.

And as can be seen from the footage posted another great show played with the standard setlist.

The less said about the "Live Updates" the better, but more stuff from this show has now been posted online.

17 Song Setlist

The same 17 song setlist played once more.

All three 'Diamond Star Halos' songs played in Fargo for the first time.

The 'Drift Away' snippet and sing-along was again played before 'This Guitar'.

Fargo/West Fargo History

The first visit was in August 1983 in West Fargo on the Pyromania tour at the Red River Valley Fair. A show which featured a partial stage roof collapse.

They would not return until ten years later in August 1993 for their first show at the FargoDome on the Adrenalize tour when they were also honoured as part of the local Walk Of Fame.

The Fargo Civic Memorial Auditorium was then played in July 1999 on the Euphoria tour.

A return to the Red River Valley Fair in West Fargo on the X/Ten tour in June 2003.

Like the 1983 show at the same event this show suffered from bad weather conditions and had to be stopped after just 12 songs.

The FargoDome was played for a second time in October 2006 during the first tour with Journey for the YEAH! album.

One of the less well attended shows on that tour with the capacity set at 11,772 and only 7,887 showing up according to Billboard.

They came back to the FargoDome once again in July 2018.

Last night's show was the 7th overall performance in Fargo/West Fargo.

The next Def Leppard show takes place in Omaha, NE on 13th August for the start of three outdoor stadium shows to end this short run.
