Def Leppard played the 12th and final show of the 2019 Sin City Residency last night in Las Vegas, NV with 24 songs performed.

The show took place at the 7,000 capacity Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood.

The 12th and last night of the residency. The second of the band's career after 2013's VIVA! Hysteria.

Also the second night of filming for a DVD/Blu-ray of the show with another lengthy setlist played.

Joe also spoke about the end of the residency on his weekly Planet Rock radio show last night. As you can see in the Fan Videos and read below Rick came out for the Semi Acoustic section dressed as a King.

All of the 28 different songs played at the 12 shows were performed for the DVD taping on Nights 11 and 12.

No word yet on when the DVD might be released or on the status of the DVD filmed in London in December 2018 and/or the documentary that was filmed during 2018/early 2019.

The 37th time overall that the band have played in Las Vegas.

Joe Elliott - Band Intros

"We don't do this very often. We've only done this since we've been doing this residency. This is the last time for a while that we're gonna be doing this so I'm kinda feeling a bit emotional actually because it's been such an amazing experience. Not just...the whole night, the whole gig. This whole three weeks has been fantastic but us doing what we're about to do here has been very special for us. Given us the chance to do something a little bit different."

"What we've got for you right now essentially is a couple of songs that until we arrived in Vegas we had never played in front of an audience ever. And a song that we haven't done for so long we've actually forgotten how it went. But we've brought them back. We hope you enjoy them and of course I can't do this on my own so let's bring every body out one at a time. Ready for this?. Alongside myself a 42 year veteran of this band on the bass guitar Mr. Rick Savage."

"Ah who's next? 27 year veteran of the band from Belfast in Northern Ireland make some noise for Mr. Vivian Campbell!. Ah what we got next?. 37 years veteran of the band. From Walthamstow in East London Mr. Phil Collen! Looking very dapper, very dapper."

"And last but not least from Dronfield in Derbyshire on the drums. 41 year veteran of the band Mr. Rick Allen!. Oh shit. Do we have to learn Bohemian Rhapsody now?. No let's not do that let's do this instead."

Joe Elliott - End Of Show Speech

"Las Vegas, Nevada or wherever you have travelled from to be here tonight. Thanks for coming. Thanks for having us. We'll see you next time. Goodnight."

"That's it we're done. For now. 12 out of 12. What a way to end it. You guys have been amazing. Thank you so much. You may have noticed we've been filming it so you might see yourselves in the future sometime. From all of us to all of you thanks for coming. Thanks for having us and until next time. And there will be a next time!. Do us a big favour yeah. Don't forget us and we won't forget you. Goodnight."

"And it's been a fantastic experience being based in Las Vegas for the best part of three and a half weeks. 12 shows. Amazing audiences. We changed up the setlist every single night and had an absolute blast doing it. And we will do this again one day. I'm out of here tomorrow but I will be back here in a couple of weeks time for a one-off show. Until then though I'm going on holiday."
