Def Leppard played a 2016 Summer Tour show last night in Noblesville, IN with 16 songs performed.

The show took place at the 24,000 capacity Klipsch Music Center.

The band's first time in Noblesville since 30th August 2015 on the 2015 tour.

The 17th show the band have played in this city.

The first visit here took place in August 1981 at Hilbert Circle Theatre as support to Ozzy Osbourne during the High 'n' Dry tour.

Since then four indoor shows have been played in 1983, 1987/1992 (both In The Round) and 2003.

This was the 10th show at this venue which has been played under three different names.

It was first played as the Deer Creek Music Center.

The setlist remained unchanged again.

The old curtain is still being used after it was brought back at the Hershey, PA show.

And like the last few shows this show started in bright sunshine and hot temperatures.

Watch some Fan Videos from the show here.

It was a hot night. As it is tonight. Hot crowd, lots of ya. Lot of noise. Thank you so much."

"And this is one of the reasons we like to keep coming back here. You've supported us for a very long time and we thank you. And you know in that long time that we've been doing this.
