Def Leppard 2017 Mexico City, Mexico (Show Report)

Def Leppard 2017. By pepinocorven

Def Leppard played another show on the 2017 Tour last night in Mexico City, Mexico with 17 songs performed.

The show took place at the 22,300 capacity Arena Ciudad de México.

The band last played Mexico City on 4th September 2014 on the Summer 2014 Tour.

The first visit to Mexico City took place over two nights at the Palacio de los Deportes in September 1993 to end the Adrenalize tour.

That returned to the same venue in April 1997 on the Slang tour.

Two shows were played at the Auditorio Nacional in November 2005 on the Rock Of Ages tour.

Following a very long seven year gap Mexico City was played again in September 2012 on the second Rock Of Ages tour. The first visit to the Arena Ciudad de Mexico.

September 2014 saw the band return once again to the Palacio de los Deportes along with opening act Coda who had supported them in September 1993.

As is usual in Mexico the stageing was different to other shows on the tour with a completely new lighting rig used and different drum riser.

The regular 17 song 2017 setlist was played with the three new songs - 'Let's Go', 'Dangerous' and 'Man Enough' all played in this city for the very first time.

As with the 2012 show the band used the massive three sided scoreboard video screen during the show.

Joe read out a message in Spanish for the crowd before "Rock Of Ages" referencing the recent earthquakes.

Joe Elliott - Mexico Speech

“Mi español es un poco”, ¡Amigos!, es un honor estar con México en estos momentos difíciles, a los héroes que ayudaron a salvar vidas ¡Fuerza México! Muchas gracias”.

(Rough Translation) - "My Spanish is a little", Friends !, it is an honor to be with Mexico in these difficult moments, the heroes who helped to save lives Force Mexico! Thank you very much".

Monterrey band The Warning opened the show. The female trio played at the video announcement for the Mother Of All festival and will be on the bill for that show.

U2 played a show in the city on the same night at the 40,000 capacity Foro Sol stadium only a few miles away. A show that was announced well after Def Leppard's.
