Def Leppard played show 52 of the 2015 World Tour last night in Des Moines, IA with 17 songs performed.

The show took place at the Iowa State Fair.

The band's first time in Des Moines since 20th August 2014 during the Summer Tour 2014 with KISS.

The 9th appearance by the band in this city. The first show took place in June 1980 on their debut American tour supporting Ted Nugent.

As with the last show the band once again used the fair's own lighting rig but did manage to fit in all of their main video screens.

'Let It Go' remained as song #3 in the setlist and 'Promises' was once more played instead of fellow Euphoria song 'Paper Sun'.

Joe Elliott - Two Steps Behind Intro

"We are here to spirit you away from all things political this evening. So this is a politics free zone right here. So that means it's a sing-along. Now how's your voices feeling?. I see we've got people all the way to the far end at this stand in the back there. We can just about see them but we can't hear them at all. So why don't you make some noise. Everybody down here be quiet for a second. You guys over there. Are you there?. All right you're there. And what about over here?. And of course here...and here!. OK so now we've established the fact that you're out there and that you can actually make some noise. How would you like to join the band for the next four minutes?. Fuck all this political shit. You can actually be in Def Leppard right now. Tell all your friend tomorrow you were in the band. You wanna do that?. Ok well if you know it, sing it. Two Steps Behind. "
