  • Location / Albany, NY, USA
  • Venue / Times Union Center

The first show by the band in this city since August 2003 on the X/Ten world tour.

The third time at this venue.

The venue is located in the city centre in the downtown area and close to the Hudson River.

It was opened in January 1990 as Knickerbocker Arena.

From 1997 to 2006 it was named as Pepsi Arena and then renamed as Times Union Center.

This venue was last played as the Pepsi Center on that tour.

Def Leppard closed this show playing the same 16 song setlist as night one.

'When Love & Hate Collide' and 'Man Enough' were both played in Albany for the first time.

The intro of the show was shortened with the Albums and Astronaut parts cut out. Starting instead with the 'Are You Excitable?' audio after the video countdown timer ended.

This was the first show where the new Def Leppard Pale beer is available for fans to buy in the venue and surrounding area.
