The residency is called “Def Leppard Hits Vegas: The Sin City Residency”. Delighted crowds were treated to a plethora of tracks, “Die Hard The Hunter”, “Slang”, “Billy’s Got A Gun”, “Have You Ever Needed Someone So Bad” and “Now”.

Antimusic reports that there was a pair of live debuts: “Let Me Be The One” from 2000’s “X” and “We Belong” from 2015’s eponymous record. The night also comprised of a four-track mini-acoustic set in the middle of the evening.

Frontman Joe Elliott. Had this to say of the event:

“Five years ago, we played our first-ever residency in Las Vegas which was relatively new ground for a rock band giving this kind of experience… I have to say, we really enjoyed it! Being in one place for the best part of a month is vastly different to our normal city to city touring routine. Breaking this cycle adds another element to the experience for both us and the audience. We look forward to seeing you at the Zappos Theater this summer!”
