Def Leppard played a 2016 Summer Tour show last night in Raleigh, NC with 17 songs performed.

The show took place at the 20,000 capacity Coastal Credit Union Music Park at Walnut Creek.

The band's first time in Raleigh since 20th July 2014 on the Summer Tour 2014.

The 12th show the band have played in Raleigh and 11th time at this venue.

The first visit here took place in January 1988 at the Reynolds Coliseum.

An In The Round show during the Hysteria tour and the only indoor show in Raleigh.

The next show took place in September 1993 on the Adrenalize tour.

The first show of the 11 played at this venue which was then named Walnut Creek Amphitheatre.

They returned to this venue in 1996 on the Slang tour before it was renamed for the first time.

It was played as the Alltel Pavilion in April 2003 during the X/Ten tour.

Further shows then took place here in 2005, 2006, 2007, 2009, 2011, 2014 and last year.

Some fans were unfortunately caught up in a nasty incident at a local Mall before the show took place.

A gun scare occured at the Crabtree Valley Mall which resulted in SWAT teams being called and people being evacuated. Thankfully safely!. The security at the venue was tightened because of this with delays for fans getting in.

The show was played in temperatures of around 91 degrees.

This venue was renamed by its current sponsor after the tour was announced in February.

The same setlist was played again with all three 'Def Leppard' album tracks being played here for the first time.
