8 Years Ago DEF LEPPARD Rock WEMBLEY Stadium For The NFL (Video)

Def Leppard 2014. Def Leppard 2014

Def Leppard returned to Wembley Stadium in London, England on this day in 2014 to play a short set before an NFL game.

The show took place before the kick-off of the game between Oakland Raiders and Miami Dolphins.

They played a medley of three songs - Animal, Let's Get Rocked and Pour Some Sugar On Me before the sold out crowd of over 80,000 fans. Cheerleaders performed on the field with pyrotechnics and fireworks set off behind the band who played on a small stage complete with video screens. A large Union Jack banner was unveiled by Military personnel on the field which included the classic Def Leppard logo as the set closed.

The band's first appearance at the new stadium and first without Vivian Campbell on guitar.

Ironically he had made his second appearance with the band in April 1992 at the old Wembley Stadium. His official public unveiling after joining the band in February 1992.

Trixter guitarist Steve Brown filled in temporarily for this performance and four small shows in the USA as Vivian underwent a Stem Cell transplant.
