Def Leppard played another show on The World Tour 2023 last night in Rivas-Vaciamadrid/Madrid, Spain with 17 songs performed.

The show took place at the 15,000 capacity Auditorio Miguel RΓ­os.

The first show in this city since October 1996.

A return to Spain.

Outdoor Amphitheatre

After a quick hop over the border from Portugal the band were back in Spain.

In Rivas-Vaciamadrid / Madrid - 9 miles to the South East of the centre of Madrid.

To play an American style amphitheatre venue which was opened in 2009 and named after Spanish singer Miguel Rios.

And another show in front of about 15,000 fans.

A venue similar to the three played in 1981 when they made their debut here with three outdoor shows supporting Rainbow.

Late Finish

A local band named Los Sex opened the show at 7:30pm followed by Motley Crue at 9pm.

Another late show for Def Leppard with a start time of 11pm.

So another late finish on Sunday morning of 12:30am.

But now a couple of days off before the end of the mainland European shows and a return to the UK.

17 Song Setlist

The same 17 song setlist played once more.

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

Madrid History

The band first played Madrid in 1981 with Rainbow at the Estadio Roman Valero. Their biggest audience played to here of 20,000.

They returned in October 1983 on the Pyromania tour.
