Def Leppard played another show on the 2018 Hysteria tour last night in Glasgow, Scotland with 17 songs performed.

The show took place at the 10,000 capacity The SSE Hydro Arena.

The band's first time in Glasgow since 10th December 2015 on the 2015 World Tour.

The 12th appearance by the band in this city and second time at this venue.

The first visit here was in October 1979 for two shows supporting AC/DC at the Apollo Theatre.

The first headline show took place in January 1980 at Tiffany's before a second show at the Apollo Theatre on the April 1980 UK headline tour.

It would be 12 years before they returned for an In The Round show at the SECC complex in June 1992 during the Adrenalize tour after many years of visits to Edinburgh including the original Hysteria tour.

The next two show sat the SECC took place in November 1996 on the Slang tour and October 1999 on the Euphoria tour.

February 2003 saw the band play at the legendary Barrowlands Ballroom on the X/Ten tour.

It was then back to the SECC for two shows in June 2008 on the Sparkle Lounge tour and December 2011 on the Mirrorball tour.

The SSE Hydro was then played for the first time in December 2015.


The 'Hysteria' album was played in full for the very first time in Glasgow.

'Dont Shoot Shotgun'. 'Run Riot', 'Excitable' and 'Love And Affection' were all played for the first time here.

The full Hysteria album was followed by five songs again. 'Wasted' was played as song #13 and for the first time in Glasgow since February 2003.

The third time the song has been played on the UK tour after Belfast and London.

Cheap Trick

Cheap Trick opened the show and again changed one song from the previous show.
