Def Leppard played a 2016 Summer Tour show last night in St. Paul/Minneapolis, MN with 17 songs performed.

The show took place at the 12,000+ capacity Xcel Energy Center.

The band's first time in St. Paul or Minneapolis since 5th October 2015 on the 2015 world tour.

The 17th show the band have played in St. Paul/Minneapolis (or Bloomington).

The first visit to Minneapolis was in August 1980 at the Civic Center as support to Judas Priest on their first American tour.

They returned in October 1981 at the Met Center with Blackfoot on the High 'n' Dry tour.

An April 1983 show was next at Northrop Auditorium as support to Billy Squier on the Pyromania tour.

Their first time as headliners happened in July 1988 with three sold out In The Round shows at the Met Center with Tesla in support.

The first time they had played three nights at one arena in the USA (or elsewhere).

They even covered 'Brown Sugar' by the Rolling Stones at one of the shows.

The first visit to the Target Center took place in November 1992 with another In The Round show on the Adrenalize tour.

They would return there again in July 2006 on the YEAH! tour and in August 2014 with KISS.

In July 2002 two X/Ten album promo shows were played at Mall Of America and The Quest Club.

They have also played at the Minnesota State Fair in St. Paul five times in 1993, 2000, 2007, 2011 and 2015.

Last year's show at the Xcel Energy Center was played on the same date - 5th October. One of two shows in the area on the 2015 tour.

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

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