Def Leppard played show 66 of the 2015 World Tour last night in Ridgefield, WA with 17 songs performed.

The show took place at Amphitheater Northwest.

The band's first time in Ridgefield since 27th June 2014 during the Summer Tour 2014 with KISS.

The 7th visit to this city in Washington State which is very close to Portland, Oregon hence Joe referring to it as Portland.

All seven shows have been played at this venue which holds almost 16,000 fans.

The first visit was in September 2003 near the end of the X/Ten world tour.

'Paper Sun' returned to the set for the first time since St. Louis on 4th September.

'Let's Go' was not added to the set and the wait for it's live debut goes on. Rick Allen had hinted in a facebook post a few hours prior to the show that it "might" make it's debut here. There could be an internal debate as to its placement in the set - opener?, replacement for 'Let It Go' and/or the 'Promises'/'Paper Sun' slot (or none of those...).

Did they really, really wanna play this now? - no - but probably will tomorrow (or not).

Joe Elliott - Phil Collen Intro

"Well good evening. How we doing out there?. Sounding pretty good. Make some noise for my very good friend here all the way from the East End of London Mr. Phil Collen."

Joe Elliott - Foolin' Intro

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

Joe Elliott - Vivian Campbell Intro

"Thank you woo. Well look who's here. (after Rick's drum beat) No, not him, not yet. This is the boy who 's come a very long way from Northern Ireland. The boy who puts the fast in Belfast. Ladies and Gentleman can you make a lot of noise plEEse. for a very happy and healthy Vivian Campbell."

Joe Elliott - Pre Two Steps Behind Speech

"I don't want you to be quiet at all actually. I would like you to make as much noise fucking well want. In fact this is a very good opportunity to make as much noise as you fucking! well want because right now we would like to invite you all to join the band for the next few minutes. Would do you think? You want to be in Def Leppard for a while. Tell all your friends tomorrow that you were actually in the band right. Because as you can see on this one it's just you and me. So I need all the help that I can get. Can you do that?. Can you do that?!. Alright well as they say. If you know it, sing it. Two Steps Behind."

Joe Elliott - End Of Show Speech

"Portland. Thanks for coming. Thanks for having us. Thanks for being here. We'll see you next time. Goodnight."

"Once again Portland. Thank you. Been a real pleasure, thanks a lot. Until next time. And there will be a next time!. Do us a favour yeah. Don't forget us and we won't forget you. Goodnight."
