Def Leppard played show 61 of the 2015 World Tour last night in Allentown, PA with 17 songs performed.

The show took place at The Great Allentown Fair.

The band's first time in Allentown since 26th August 2003 during the X/Ten Tour.

The 7th visit to Allentown and this fair.

The first visit was in 1983 during the Pyromania tour when the band were famously photographed at a 'soccer' game against radio station WZZO.

'Let It Go' was again played as song #3. 'Paper Sun' was played in place of 'Promises'.

As you can read below - Joe was challenged by Sav to play a snippet of 'Allentown' by Billy Joel but doesn't know how to play it (and someone in the crowd seems to like Billy's ex-wife - see Fan Videos).

Joe Elliott - Foolin' Intro

"Thank you. Thank you very much. OK let's shift it up a couple of years shall we from 1981 to 1983 and the Pyromania album."

Joe Elliott - Vivian Campbell Intro

"Thank you. Thank you very much. Well look who's here. The boy who puts the fast in Belfast. Ladies and Gentleman all the way from Northern Ireland. Can you make a lot of noise please for a very happy and healthy Vivian Campbell."

Joe Elliott - Two Steps Behind Intro Speech

"What?. I was challenged about two hours ago by Rick Savage to play Allentown by Billy Joel. But I can't 'cause I don't know it. So let's just pretend we did. If he comes to town tell him we did an awesome version of it. And you all sang along because you all know it right?. OK some of you know it. Hopefully you'll know this next one because as you can see on this particular number it's just you and me OK. Which is in a roundabout way an invitation to join the band. Do you wanna join the band. Tell all your friends tomorrow that you were actually in Def Leppard for four minutes or so. What do you think?. Well if you know it, sing it, Two Steps Behind."

Joe Elliott - Pre Rock Of Ages Speech

"Thank you very much. That's a lot of noise you're making out there. Can you make just maybe a little bit more for the boy at the back. Stand up Rick Allen. He will introduce this one for ya."

Joe Elliott - End Of Show Speech

"Allentown, Pennsylvania!. Thanks for coming. Thanks for having us. Thanks for being here. We'll see you next time. Goodnight."

"Once again Allentown. Thanks for having us, been a real pleasure. Until next time and there will be a next time!. Do us a big favour yeah. Don't forget us and we won't forget you. Goodnight."
