Def Leppard played another show with Journey on the 2018 North American tour last night in Baltimore, MD with 16 songs performed.

The show took place at the 14,000 capacity Royal Farms Arena.

The band last played Baltimore on 14th April 2017 on the Summer Tour 2017.

The sixth show the band have played in this city and at this arena.

The first visit was in October 1987 for an In The Round show during the Hysteria tour under the Baltimore Arena name.

Tesla were also supporting the band on that night, one of the first In The Round shows played.

A second In The Round show was played in March 1993 during the Adrenalize tour.

Following a ten year gap they came back in April 2003 during the X/Ten tour. The arena was now named 1st Mariner Arena.

A second show under this name was then played on the YEAH! tour in November 2006.

The venue had been renamed again as the Royal Farms Arena by the time they came back for the April 2017 show.

Last night's show was the end of leg one of the 2018 tour.


'When Love & Hate Collide' was played for the first time in Baltimore.
