Def Leppard played show number 16 of The Stadium Tour in Milwaukee, WI last night with 17 songs performed.

The show took place at the 41,900 capacity American Family Field.

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

The 12th show by the band in this city and first time at this venue.

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

Another baseball stadium show in front of almost 40,000 fans.

More good weather? - Yes.

Show #16 - Sunshine In Milwaukee

And in keeping with recent tradition on the tour it was another show played in bright sunshine.

The "drought" has been full relieved (for now) it would seem.

Starting promptly again at 7:30pm Def Leppard came out swinging in this massive baseball stadium which looks like it holds more than the 41,900 capacity.

As you can see in the photos below it also has a very impressive moveable roof which was opened to let in that good weather ahead of show time.

Another great show for a sold out crowd. Something they've been doing for quite a while now.

44th Anniversary Of Def Leppard Live Shows

This show coincided with the 44th anniversary of the band's first public live show in Sheffield on 18th July 1978.

Well almost but the band were on stage after it had already become the 18th July in England where that show took place 44 years ago at Westfield School.

The next show will mark the start of the 45th year of live shows for the band (in their 45th year as a band).

PSSOM Video Screen Change

In another change to the show the city name of MILWAUKEE was shown on the top moveable video screen during 'Pour Some Sugar On Me'.

As with the 2018 tour the name was displayed in the classic Def Leppard yellow/red font.

The name moved in and out as the song played.

The city names were usually displayed at the start and end of the shows in 2018 before 'Women' and after 'Photograph'.

The amended intro and visuals to 'Take What You Want' first seen in Cincinnati remained in place at this show.

No Setlist Changes

Another 17 song setlist played with 'Let It Go' and 'Promises' keeping their places for the fifth show in a row.

Motley Crue

The regular 15 song setlist played once more.
