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

The show took place at the 12,000 capacity HersheyPark Stadium.

The band's first time in Hershey since 15th August 2012 on the Rock Of Ages tour.

The sixth show the band have played in this city and fifth time at this venue.

The first visit here took place in November 1992.

An In The Round show at the HersheyPark Arena during the Adrenalize tour.

The next four shows in 2006, 2011 and 2012 all took place at the outdoor HersheyPark Stadium.

The Thrust stage was not used at this show due to venue restrictions.

The setlist remained unchanged again.

Only the front area near the stage had seating with most of the floor standing or general admission (GA).

The limitations of the smaller outdoor stage also meant the band reverted to using the original triangular Def Leppard logo curtain from the 2015 tour/early 2016 shows.

"Thank you. Thank you very much. Wow it's been a real pleasure people. As I mentioned earlier 33 years since we first played here. And you guys have been there for us. We like to keep coming back for you. This is fun to do. We thank you for that very much. Of course it's not always been an easy road.
