Def Leppard played a 2016 Summer Tour show last night in New Orleans, LA with 17 songs performed.

The show took place at the 17,800+ capacity Smoothie King Center.

The band's first time in New Orleans since 22nd September 2011 on the Mirrorball world tour.

The 7th show the band have played in New Orleans and fourth time at this venue.

The first visit here took place in December 1987 with an In The Round show played during the Hysteria tour at the Lakefront Arena.

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

They would not return until July 2005 on the Rock Of Ages tour when they played the same venue for the third and last time.

Since then they have played three shows at the New Orleans Arena in 2006, 2009 and 2011.

The November 2006 show was the final US date of the YEAH! tour.

The same setlist was played again with no changes.

This show was announced on 27th May following the main tour announcement in February.
