Def Leppard VIVA Hysteria! 2013 - Show #1 Las Vegas, NV Setlist

    Ded Flatbird opening set

The band played 10 songs as their own opening act with a joke name. This was written on the head of Rick's bass drum. The stage was set up as it would be for any opener with a Union Jack curtain hiding the main stage. The same thrust stage from 2012 was used and the amps/equipment used for this set were cleared away during the short intermission. A red curtain covering the stage at the start was closed again during the intermission/changeover (see blog pics).
