Def Leppard played show 48 of the 2015 World Tour last night in Sioux Falls, SD with 17 songs performed.

The show took place at the Denny Sanford PREMIER Center.

The band's first time in Sioux Falls since 2nd September 2005 during the Rock Of Ages tour.

The fifth time here overall with the first visit taking place in September 1992 with an In The Round show on the Adrenalize tour.

The first arena show of this second leg of the American tour.

This show saw the return of the hydraulic platform last seen on the 2012 Rock Of Ages tour. Joe and Sav would use it at the start of the show and rise up from behind Rick's drum riser. At this show Joe used it at the start of Rock On. Rising up behind Rick bathed in light and then being lowered down as the song kicked in. Before this show Joe had simply walked up the steps behind Rick.

See Rock On in the Fan Videos section.

Joe suffered from vocal issues at the show especially towards the end during Rock Of Ages (see videos). Similar to issues he had back in 2012 in Saratoga Springs. And at one show in 2011 when he basically lost his voice completely at the end of a show in extreme heat.

Joe explained to the crowd his issues were due to the bike fumes in Sturgis at the last show and described it as a "touch of laryngitis".

Many thanks to Wizmann for the setlist photo/show info. 'Let It Go' was left out in place of 'Paper Sun' which returned to the set for the first time since late July.

Joe Elliott - Vivian Campbell Intro

"Oh yeah. He's from Northern Ireland. He puts the fast in Belfast. Ladies and gentleman will you please make a lot of noise for a very happy and healthy Vivian Campbell."

Joe Elliott - Two Steps Behind Intro

"Now I've got what they call in the business a touch of laryngitis as you can probably tell. So I'd like you all to do me a little favour for the next four minutes. I want you to join me. I want you to join the band OK because as you can see it's just you and me. I need your help OK. I need your help. Can you do it?. So we played Sturgis last night and there was like two hundred thousand million motorcycles and I think I swallowed all the gas that came out of their exhausts and it's took my top end away. But I have every faith that everybody out there can sing the bits that need to be sung what do you think?. It's dead simple. If you know it, sing it Two Steps Behind."

The next show takes place on 10th August in Oklahoma City, OK.
