Def Leppard 2017 Tour Edmonton, AB (Show Report)

Def Leppard 2017. By dontblamejay

Def Leppard played another show on the 2017 North American Tour last night in Edmonton, AB with 17 songs performed.

The show took place at the 20,734 capacity Rogers Place.

The band last played Edmonton on 23rd April 2015 on the 2015 World Tour on what would have been Steve Clark's 55th birthday.

The 11th show the band have played in Edmonton, AB and the first time at this venue.

Rogers Place was opened in September 2016.

The first visit was in July 1983 at Northlands Coliseum on the Pyromania tour with Uriah Heep in support.

They returned to the same venue in June 1988 on the Hysteria tour for an In The Round show.

A second In The Round show took place in October 1992 at the same venue on the Adrenalize tour.

In September 1996 two shows were played in the city. The first being a rare club show for contest winners at The Thunderdome sponsored by Molson beer.

The second show was played the following night and was the fourth appearance at Northlands Coliseum.

January 2000 saw them play the Shaw Conference Centre on the Euphoria tour.

This was the venue once again when they came back in September 2003 on the X/Ten tour.

They returned to Northlands Coliseum in August 2005 on the Rock Of Ages tour under it's new name of Rexall Place.

The venue was played twice more in October 2007 on the Downstage Thrust tour and in April 2015.

17 songs were played at last night's show with all three new album songs staying in the set.

All of the new album songs were played in Edmonton for the first time.

Joe informed the crowd they were the loudest yet on the tour which is quite a compliment seeing as they've already played Montreal (consistently one of the loudest crowds they play to).

Joe Elliott - Vivian Campbell/Armageddon It Intro

"Oh we f**kin' love this place, this is amazing, look at it. And that is the most tasteful sign I've seen this whole tour, It says 'F**k Disneyland, This is the happiest place on Earth'. I love that, thank you. Look who's here. This boy here left, left his home country of Northern Ireland 35 years ago this year. 35 years since he left his home to go to seek his fortune and he's been onboard this wacky little thing since 1992. 25 years this year. He is the boy who puts the fast in Belfast. Ladies and gentleman can you make a lot of noise please?!. Can you make a lot of noise please?! for Mr. Vivian Campbell!."

Joe Elliott - Pre-Rock Of Ages Speech

"Wow. We will come here again, we love this place. We were just huddled backstage and discussing whether this was the loudest one so far. And I know you think we do this every night. Saying you're the loudest to everybody but no, we do not. This is so far the loudest one of the lot. Unbelievable. Thank you so much. Some noise you're making, it really is. But!, do you think, do you think maybe you can make just a little bit more?. Just a little more?. For the boy at the back here. Stand up Rick Allen!. And, as always, he will introduce this one for ya."

Joe Elliott - End Of Show Speech

"Edmonton, Alberta, Canada!. Thanks for coming. Thanks for having us. Thanks for being here. Until next time. Goodnight."

"Unbelievable, thank you so much. Wow. Let's do this again one day. Until next and, and there will be a next time!. Take care of yourselves. And do us a big favour. Don't forget us and we won't forget you. Goodnight."
