Def Leppard continued their 2016 Summer Tour last night in Orlando, FL with 16 songs performed.

The show took place at the 16,000+ seat Amway Center.

The band's first time in Orlando since 5th November 2006 on the YEAH! tour.

The fourth show the band have played in this city.

The first visit was an In The Round show during the Hysteria tour in December 1987.

They returned for another In The Round show on the Adrenalize tour in February 1993.

This was the first time the band have played at the Amway Center which was opened in October 2010.

Last night's show was originally planned for 30th January but was postponed a few hours before show time due to Joe's vocal issues.

No changes were made to the the regular 16 song setlist.

As with the other shows on this tour leg 'Let's Go' and 'Dangerous' were played here for the first time.

The band wrapped up the first leg of the 2016 tour in front of a packed house as you can see from the fan photos.

Joe Elliott - Vivian Campbell Intro

"Thank you very much. OK let's have a look at you once again. Oh he's here. Look who's here. This boy here. has come a long way. Since the - well, since the heady days of Northern Ireland. He is the boy who puts the fast in Belfast. Ladies and gentleman can you make a lot of noise please. For a very happy and healthy Vivian Campbell."

Joe Elliott - Phil Collen Intro

"We kept our promise and said we gotta come back. So here we are. And tonight, Ladies and gentleman look at you. This is the last night of this particular leg of the tour. What a fucking great way to go home. There's an awful lot of people out there. And you're gonna get a bit of everything tonight. Something old. Something new. Something borrowed. We're gonna do you something. One of our more recent compositions from the latest album. To intro this song make some noise please for Mr. Phil Collen. This one's called Dangerous."

Joe Elliott - Pre-Rock Of Ages Speech

"It's a very emotional evening for me tonight this because as you're probably aware. Most of you were due here in January. and it all went kind of shit-shaped and we've even got some people in tonight that were on the boat right. We made that - we promised everybody that we would make it up to them. As we said we would make up this gig. There was no way we were not gonna come here and play in front of a crowd like this. 'Cause this is off!. We've done a lot of gigs since that 39 years ago. when we got together. But the longer you do it. The more you kind of appreciate this kind of thing because nobody expected it to last nearly 40 years. And you look round. I mean fucking hell what do you say!. That's the kind if spirit that bounces back and forth. from the band to the audience and back again. But nobody. nobody epitomises that spirit more than this boy at the back here. Stand up Rick Allen!. An as ever he will introduce this one for ya."

Joe Elliott - End Of Show Speech

"Orlando, Florida. Thanks for coming. Thanks for having us. Thanks for being here. See you next time. Goodnight!."

"Holy shit!. What a fantastic way to end this leg of the tour. Thank you so much Orlando. I'm glad we could finally do this. Thanks for coming. Thanks for being here. Until next time. And there will be a next time!. You do us a big favour yeah. Don't forget us and we won't forget you. Goodnight!."
