Def Leppard played show 18 of the 2015 World Tour last night in Stuttgart, Germany with another 18 song setlist played.

The show took place at the Porsche-Arena.

This was the first show in Stuttgart since November 2003 on the X/Ten tour. Almost 6,000 fans attended the show.

It was also their first time in Germany since June 2006 in Oberhausen. A planned appearance at the Magic Circle Festival in Bad Arolsen in July 2008 was cancelled.

The setlist was unchanged from the previous show in Prague. One major change from previous shows on this tour was that the 'Thrust Stage' was not used. Joe sang 'TSB' in his usual front of stage spot in front of Rick's drumkit.

'Let It Go' was once again played in its regular song #3 position as the band settle into a regular setlist routine. At least until Oslo when they will have to shorten their set as special guests to Judas Priest.

Joe Elliott - Pre-Two Steps Behind Speech

"This is Stuttgart yeah!. It's been a while. It's good to be back. Thanks for waiting. Thanks for coming. There's a lot of people out there making a lot of noise. Except maybe on the sides you could be a little louder. How you feeling?. How about you?. And what about you?. OK fancy doing some singing? Yeah can you sing? Can you sing!?."

"OK well now's your chance. If you want to join the band four minutes or so. You want to be in Def Leppard? Tell your friends you were in the band. If you know the words please sing them right back at us because as you can see it's just you and me on this one OK. Are you ready?. Are you ready!?."

Joe Elliott - End Of Show Speech

"Stuttgart. Thanks for coming. Thanks for having us, been a real pleasure. Danke schön."

"Once again Stuttgart. Danke schön. Thank you. Been a real pleasure. Until next time, and there will be a next time. Do us a favour. Don't forget us and we won't forget you. Auf Wiedersehen!."

The band were supported by Black Star Riders . The first of three support shows for them in Germany.

The band confirmed before the show that they will also be opening in Cologne after only displaying the first two dates on their site.

Singer Ricky Warwick was the support act as a solo artist the last time the band played Stuttgart in 2003.
