Vivian Campbell by Anne Erickson

Def Leppard, Poison and Tesla are currently on a 2017 North American tour that runs through late June. A recent tour stop brought a 90-minute, hit-packed set from the Def Leppard guys, with stunning guitar moments from Vivian Campbell and Phil Collen and killer crooning from Joe Elliott.

Campbell played his sparkling Gibson Les Paul throughout the night, making the sweetest of rock sounds look so easy and effortless. Check out some photos here.

Songs like “Foolin’,” “Love Bites,” “Hysteria,” “Bringin’ on the Heartbreak,” “Animal” and “Let It Go” had the crowd amped up from start to finish. It was one big, rock ‘n’ roll party with the kind of anthems that just get sweeter as the decades stack up.

Opening the run, Poison sounded at home with Bret Michaels and their original lineup intact. Tesla, who have become regular touring budding with Def Leppard, also rocked the house, with an energetic live show that got the early attendees ready for the night.

Check out the remaining tour dates for Def Leppard’s 2017 run below.
