Def Leppard played a 2016 Summer Tour show last night in Toronto, ON with 17 songs performed.

The show took place at the 16,000 capacity Molson Canadian Amphitheatre.

The band's first time in Toronto since 14th July 2015 on the 2015 world tour.

The 13th show the band have played in Toronto and 9th time at this venue.

The first visit here took place at Maple Leaf Gardens 10th June 1983 during the Pyromania tour.

The third show the band had ever played in Canada following on from shows in Montreal (9th) and Quebec City (7th).

They would return in June 1988 and play the only one-end/outdoor show of the Hysteria tour in Canada at CNE Grandstand.

Watch the full 1988 show and view photos.

This venue would be played again in August 1993 on the Adrenalize tour preceded by the only In The Round show ever played in Toronto at Maple Leaf Gardens in October 1992.

Since July 1996 every show in this city has been played at the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre. The 'Canadian' was not added to the name until the 2001 show.

The other shows took place in 2003, 2005, 2007, 2009, 2014 and 2015.

The same setlist played again and the final show of the second leg of the 2016 summer tour (if you count May as leg 1).

Emm Gryner attended this show along with her brother (and Trapper band mate) Frank.

Frank is also now the band's current promo video director having filmed the videos for 'Let's Go', 'Dangerous' and 'Man Enough'.

Joe Elliott - Pre-Rock Of Ages Speech

"In the old days it was lighters now it's cell phones get 'em out. Let's see what you look like we're gonna dim the lights. Let's turn this place into f**king Christmas. You lot turn around and look at this 'cause this is too f**king amazing. Oh yeah. When we first came here 1983 I believe was the first time that we set foot in Toronto. You guys embraced this band and we've never forgotten it. We never will. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your support over the years. And look at you. This is amazing, amazing."

"33 years is a long time and if you've been following this band since then you know we've been through some shit. Everybody does but you grow. You get stronger. You rise above. And nobody epitomises that more than this boy here at the back. Stand up Rick Allen!. And as always he will introduce this one for ya."

The next show takes place on 6th August in Madison, WI.
