Def Leppard played show 100 of the 2015 World Tour earlier tonight in Cardiff, Wales with 16 songs performed.

The show took place at Motorpoint Arena.

The first show in Cardiff since 14th July 2008 during the Songs From the Sparkle Lounge world tour.

The band's 5th show in Cardiff and the 100th show played on the 2015 world tour.

The most shows played in a single year since 2003 (133).

Before this year the most since then was 84 during the 2005 Rock Of Ages tour.

The third time playing this small arena. The previous shows taking place in 1999 and 2008.

After a show in 1980 there was a 19 year gap until the 1999 return. In between they played shows in Newport and again in 2003 before coming back to this city in 2008.

The first ever visit here was in June 1979 at the University.

'Let's Go' and 'Dangerous' were played in the same 16 song setlist.

Rick used the hashtag #CymruAmByth on his drum kit tonight.

Cymru Am Byth - is in the Welsh language and means - "Wales forever, or long live Wales".

Update 17th Dec - Joe reportedly paid tribute to Gareth "Morty" Mortimer during the show who was ill and has reportedly died (on the morning of 17th Dec - according to local fan Gavin). As you might have read in 'Animal Instinct' he was the lead singer in the 70s Welsh band Racing Cars who had a hit with the song "They Shoot Horses, Don't They?".

He was also the brother of Tour Manager Malvin Mortimer, who is currently on a break from the tour.

Morty performed with Joe and Sav in March 2004 at a charity concert that took place at Sheffield City Hall. The show where they did a four song acoustic set which included their only performance of 'Winter Song'.

The least amount of social network posts of any shows on the tour for a while. The few posts that did show up suggest it was another brilliant show.

View the many photos/video clips posted by fans during/after the show in the Live Blog which took place earlier.

The next show takes place on 18th December in London, England.
