Def Leppard played show 27 of the 2015 World Tour last night in West Palm Beach, FL with 17 songs performed.

The show took place at the Coral Sky Amphitheatre.

This was the bands first show in West Palm Beach since 22nd July 2014 with KISS.

Another shortened show like Tampa possibly due to the extreme heat with temperatures in the high 90s and probably hotter on stage. In Joe's words - "the hottest fucking thing we've ever done.".

'Let It Go' was cut at this show (and not on the printed setlist) with 'Foolin'' played as song #3. Both 'Promises' and 'Paper Sun' were played again after having to be dropped in Tampa.

The show started at just after 9:20pm local time so they had plenty of time to finish the normal 90 minute set by the 11pm curfew.

Possibly the last show to be played with guitarist Steve Brown of Trixter filling in for Vivian Campbell. Joe had said the day before that Vivian would "hopefully" be back in Birmingham, AL. Vivian himself has said he will be there after starting his new treatments and flying in to rejoin the band on Saturday morning.

Iron Maiden drummer Nicko McBrain, who lives in Florida, attended the show.

As shown below the band met up again with local DJ Andy Preston of 98.7 Gater FM who had earlier posted the photo of himself playing "soccer" with the band in 1983.

Joe Elliott - Pre Two Steps Behind Speech

(After playing a very short Neil Young Snippet) - "Fuck it, not doing Neil Young. Not tonight. So West Palm Beach. This is the third show of our US tour if you count Puerto Rico. It's absolutely the hottest fucking thing we've ever done. Even hotter than last year and that was hot man. I remember Gene and Paul melting all over the stage. But tonight it was Tesla who started everything off. And we toured with those guys way back on the Hysteria tour in '87/'88 but it's good to have them back and our very good friends Styx who kept the thing going. Great bunch of guys."

"Now that's all well and good but how are you? How are you?! You fancy doing some singing? what? what?. Well let's hope so because as you can see on this particular number it's just you and me. That's all we got alright. So are you ready? Are you ready?! Two Steps Behind."

Joe Elliott - Pre Rock Of Ages Speech Part One

"West Palm Beach, a pleasure as always. Until next time, take care. Good night!."

The most significant event of the show (other than the heat) was that Tesla got to finally join the tour and play their full opening set. Early reports online suggested they would play 'Song And Emotion'. The 1991 song dedicated to Steve Clark, but despite it being part of their recent setlists it was not included. Watch an excellent version of 'Heaven's Trail (No Way Out)' below which was broadcast by a fan as it was played.
