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

The show took place at the 25,000 capacity EXPO-Plaza 7.

After two shows already played in Mönchengladbach and Munich the returned to play a third show here.

This time in Hannover in Northern Germany and the capital of Lower Saxony.

Only the third time the band have played in this city and the second as headliners.

And as with the two other German shows the advertised start time was changed to 6:30pm instead of 5:30.

But this time there was a delay with Motley Crue not starting until 7:30pm CET.

Def Leppard started their closing set at 9:30 and ended the German tour at 11pm local time.

Rocking The Plaza

The venue for this was is located next to the 14,000 capacity ZAG-Arena and within a town Plaza.

The outdoor staging set up alongside the arena with room for around 25,000 fans.

Back to a full stage setup for this show.

From 'Take What You Want' to 'Photograph' the German fans were treated to another great show.

And as revealed by Rick in his Pre-Show video the band will be taking a few days off in Prague ahead of the next show.

17 Song Setlist

The same 17 song setlist played once more.

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