Def Leppard played show 23 of the 2015 World Tour last night in Solvesborg, Sweden with an 18 song setlist played.

The show took place at the Sweden Rock Festival with the band headlining the main Festival Stage.

This was the first show in Sweden since a show in Uppsala on 3rd July 2013 which was the second of two shows played in the country that year.

This was also the third time the band have headlined this festival.

The first time was on 9th June 2006 during the YEAH! tour. They then returned a second time on 6th June 2008 during the Songs From The Sparkle Lounge.

Def Leppard played their headline show from 10:30pm to 12:05am with a return to the full 18 song setlist that has been played since early in the Canadian tour.

'Promises', 'Paper Sun', 'Bass Solo/Rock On' and 'Two Steps Behind' all returned. The usual stage set up was used with all three video screens.

'Paper Sun' was played for the first time in Sweden.

As usual at this event the band used the festivals own lighting rig and a small version of the thrust stage which had also been used by the other acts including Toto and Slash (featuring Myles Kennedy).

Phil Collen described the crowd as an "amazing audience". The band left the venue site a few hours ago - as shown below.

Joe Elliott - Pre-Rock Of Ages Speech

"Thank you. That's a lot of noise. We like a lot of noise. Everytime we come here it gets louder and louder and louder!. How about you make a little bit more for the boy at the back. Stand up Rick Allen. He as ever will introduce this next number for ya."

Joe Elliott - End Of Show Speech

"Sweden, Sweden Rock!. Thanks for having us. Thanks for being here. We'll see you again, take care. Goodnight!."
