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

The show took place at the 18,320 capacity CenturyLink Center Omaha.

The band's first time in Omaha since 21st July 2012 on the Rock Of Ages tour.

The 10th show the band have played in Omaha and third time at this venue.

The first visit to Omaha was in June 1980 at the Omaha Civic Auditorium as support to Ted Nugent on their first American tour.

They returned to the same venue as headliners on the Pyromania tour in August 1983. They became the first band to sell out two nights at the venue.

Omaha Civic Auditorium was the venue again for the first of two In The Round shows in November 1987 on the Hysteria tour.

A second In The Round show happened in December 1992 on the Adrenalize tour.

They would not return until the brief Euphoria promo tour in December 1999 where they headlined five shows sponsored by radio stations.

That show featured Mr. Big and Five Story Fall on the lineup at the Ak-Sar-Ben Coliseum.

Seven years later Qwest Center Omaha (now CenturyLink Center Omaha) was played for the first time on the YEAH! tour in October 2006.

It would host a second show in October 2008 on the Songs From The Sparkle Lounge tour.

The last visit here was four years ago on the Rock Of Ages for the Red Sky Music Festival at TD Ameritrade Park Omaha. The only outdoor show they have ever played in Omaha.

No changes were made to the now usual 17 song setlist.

Phil Collen played with Tesla again on 'Save That Goodness'.

Tesla guitarist Frank Hannon had celebrated his 50th birthday the day before this show on 3rd October.
