12:02am - Def Leppard song 20 - 'Wasted' ends the show again. Kicking it old school.

11:58pm - Wasted to finish again? BTW On Friday they are on stage from 9-10:50pm UK time. Earlier than these first two shows. Far more civilised time!.

11:56pm - Def Leppard song 19 - 'When Love & Hate Collide' - first encore song.

11:56pm - Keyboards on stage for 'When Love & Hate Collide' so pretty sure Dick Decent has been a guest for two nights in a row.

6:26pm - There are reviews/Pics and videos in from Belfast. A new better quality 'Undefeated' video and more added from the show. Gives you an idea of the cool new screens being used.

6:20pm - Luca has said he may not update as much and given he's travelled all the way from Italy to see these shows you can understand him not wanting to post every 5 seconds. You should probably check in here every 20-30mins or so. Will likely be the same setlist but we'll see. Hopefully some live pics tonight (I did cheekily hint at this to Luca) and I did pass on all the thank yous to him from last night.

6:19pm - Blog is now live. If you see any news/updates online about the show please contribute.

As with yesterday - new updates will appear above this, each with a new time. Refresh to keep seeing them.
