Def Leppard played show number 33 of The Stadium Tour in Vancouver, BC last night with 17 songs performed.

The show took place at the 54,500 capacity BC Place.

The first visit to Vancouver since October 2018 on the co-headline tour with Journey.

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

The first visit here was in July 1983 at the PNE Coliseum on the Pyromania tour with Uriah Heep in support.

The 2018 was at Rogers Arena which stands next to BC Place and has been played 8 times.

That venue was played for the first time in September 1996 on the Slang tour under the name 'General Motors Place'.

On the 3rd September 1996 no less - 26 years ago today.

Show #33 - Back In Canada

Back in Canada for the second time on this tour and one of only three shows here in 2022.

A packed stadium to the South of the city centre of Vancouver and close to False Creek.

A stadium that was built in 1983 in the same year the band made their debut in Canada and first appearance in this city.

The show started at 7:30pm as the band began another two shows playing before Motley Crue.

Something they will also do at the final show later next week in Las Vegas.

Roof Open/Good Weather

'Take What You Want' kicked things off as the sun shone down through the open roof which had been open all day due to the good weather.

No Northern gloom and almost Californian type sunshine for this show.

With its roof closed this stadium looks more like a dome/indoor arena and the roof still covers the seats even with the middle section open - as seen in the photos below.

And as you can see the stadium looked pretty spectacular in daylight and as the sun went down later in the band's set.

As Sav says below this was another great show and for him similar to the Detroit, MI show.

The band played brilliantly again as the crowd sang along loudly.

Which has basically happened at each of the 33 shows played to date!.

Easily the largest audience ever played to in Vancouver with close to or over 40,000 fans in attendance.

Vancouver also being the site of one of the smallest ever Canadian shows in October 1995 when they ended the '3 Continents In One Day' world record attempt at Commodore Ballroom.

A venue which is located just 4 minutes and a few blocks away from BC Place.

The crowd were even treated to Joe's now familiar - "Is anybody out there?. Are you f**king kidding me?!" after 'Foolin''.

Three more shows to go and the next two stadium have no roof - what could go wrong?.

Other than 30C plus temps scheduled for Edmonton and San Francisco - perhaps not much!.
