Def Leppard played show 24 of the 2015 World Tour last night in Tampere, Finland with a shorter 14 song setlist played.

The show took place at the South Park Festival.

This was the first show in Finland since a show in Helsinki on 3rd July 2013 which was the second of two shows played in the country that year.

The first festival appearance by the band in Finland and first show outside of the capital city Helsinki.

The festival was hit by bad weather and persistent rain which continued throughout Def Leppard's performance. Joe even walking to the front of the stage at one point and giving the sky the middle finger - see photo below.

The crowd didn't seem to mind with very positive comments made during and after the show on social media including this from local fan Heidi - "Truly magnificent".

Another fan named Paula said this - "Rain was pouring down, but it all was totally worth it: Got to see Def Leppard play live at Tampere, South Park Festival - the show was great!".

'Promises', 'Paper Sun', 'Bass Solo/Rock On' and 'Two Steps Behind' were left out of the set as they had been in Oslo.

The reason for the shorter show is unclear with the show starting as normal at around 10:15pm local time. As you can see below on the printed setlist the band had already planned to play a shorter set before they took the stage.

All 14 songs had been played in Finland before at their previous shows in 1981, 1993 and 2008. Had Promises and Paper Sun been included they would have been played here for the first time.

Joe Elliott - Pre Foolin' Speech

"Thank you and good evening. It's good to see so many of you here on what is the very last night of the Def Leppard European tour. What a way to finish man this is great thank you. Here's something from 1983 the Pyromania album for ya."

Joe Elliott - Pre Rock Of Ages Speech

"Thanks a lot as I mentioned earlier it's the last night of our European tour. It's the first time we've ever been here. I wanna thank you on behalf of the whole band for coming and staying in this shitty weather and watching this. I hope we can do this again one day and it'll be sunny and warm or whatever. But it's also traditional at this time of a tour to get everybody there to put your hands together for our road crew who put this whole thing together and kept it as dry as possible. Thanks guys."

Joe Elliott - End Of Show Speech

"Tampere, Finland!. Thanks for coming. Thanks for having us. We'll see you again one day. Goodnight!."
