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

The show took place at the 14,000 capacity Austin360 Amphitheater.

The band's first time in Austin since 23rd August 2015 on the 2015 world tour.

The 8th show the band have played in Austin or Cedar Park.

The first visit here took place in May 1983 at Frank Erwin Center during the Pyromania tour.

They returned to the same venue in November 1987 for an In The Round show during the Hysteria tour.

A second In The Round show took place in February 1993 on the Adrenalize tour.

The August 1996 Slang tour show took place at South Park Meadows Amphitheatre and was featured in a US TV documentary special with backstage interviews and short clips of the show.

Another indoor show took place in Cedar Park when they returned six years later in 2012 on the Rock Of Ages tour.

Last nights show was the third of three shows in a row in 2014, 2015 and 2016 at this venue.

The same setlist was played again. Phil sang lead vocals on 'Man Enough' during the soundcheck.

The show was attended by Trixter guitarist (and ex-Vivian stand in) Steve Brown. And also by ex-Rainbow singer Joe Lynn Turner who posted a photo from his side stage viewing position.

Once again Vivian went racing in a Porsche on the Formula One track and posed for a photo. The venue is located within the race circuit.
