Def Leppard 2015 World Tour Dublin, Ireland - Show 93 Report

Def Leppard played show 93 of the 2015 World Tour earlier tonight in Dublin, Ireland with 16 songs performed.

The show took place at the 3Arena.

The first show in Dublin since 8th June 2011 at the start of the Mirrorball world tour.

New songs 'Let's Go' and 'Dangerous' were played in a 16 song (and it has to be said, disappointingly short for the UK/Irish leg) setlist. It appears the crowd at this show didn't mind too much though.

Rick used the hashtag #Booterstown on his drum kit tonight. This is the area of the city where the band stayed in 1984 when they first came to the city to start work on the Hysteria album. They also consumed a rather large amount of alcohol (as referenced by Joe in his Pre ROA speech - read on...).

Joe played a short verse of 'Last Dance' as an acoustic snippet before 'Two Steps Behind'.

Whitesnake and Black Star Riders opened the show. Whitesnake using the video screens this time and putting on more of a show than in 2008.

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

Joe Elliott - Pre Rock Of Ages Speech

"Thank you. Thank you very much. It's always a pleasure. Starting here is great you know there's a lot of people travelled from outside of Ireland to be here tonight. Yeah there you are. Put your hands up if you're not from Ireland. Look at that. It's an international rock show. In the capital city of this fair country. Now that's a fucking great thing. And Bono tells me there's a new national anthem. Ole Ole Ole because we all know you love to sing it. So don't be shy. Mexican wave as well holy shit. We are having a good time tonight."

"So...Stand up Rick Allen. The man who single handedly destroyed Booterstown in 1984. I'm surprised they let you back in the country. Can you make a bit more noise for Rick come on. Let's do that. Come on let's do that. He's gonna introduce this one for ya."

Joe Elliott - End Of Show Speech

"Dublin, Ireland. Thanks for having us. Thanks for coming. Thanks for being here. And we will see you again one day. Goodnight."
