Def Leppard played show 90 of the 2015 World Tour earlier today in Melbourne, Australia with 17 songs performed.

The show took place at the Rod Laver Arena.

The band's first time in Melbourne since 22nd October 2011 during the Mirrorball tour.

The 7th appearance by the band in this city.

The first visit was in February 1984 when they played a small club show at Earl's Court during the Pyromania tour. The penultimate show of that tour.

The 1995 appearance was an acoustic show during the Vault tour so six full electric shows have now been played in the city.

The Rod Laver Arena venue was still known as the National Tennis Centre in 1992 when the band first played here for two In The Round shows on the Adrenalize tour.

It is home to the Australian Open tennis championships and this was the fifth time the band have played here.

'Let's Go' opened the show again with 'Dangerous' keeping its place.

'Rock! Rock!' made a welcomed return as song #2 in the set meaning the band played 17 songs overall. Outside of this change the band kept the rest of the songs played in Sydney.

As with the first show in the country the band played from 9:15pm local time until 10:45pm.

The full production seen in Tokyo and Sydney was again used. It may be scaled down again at the next show in Perth which has a much smaller capacity.

As you can see below local fans helpfully confirmed the setlist along with the Periscope video which showed Rock! Rock! had been played at the start. Included is a photo of Ronan McHugh's setlist on his mixing desk position.

This was the sixth show Def Leppard have played on this day in their live history. The others taking place from 1981 to 2003 in USA (x2), Northern Ireland, Japan and Lithuania.

Local band Electric Mary opened this show in place of Baby Animals who return for the Perth show.

Joe Elliott - End Of Show Speech
