Opening Setlists[edit]

All 11 nights, the band opened with a distinct setlist of mostly deep cuts. They performed as the fictitious "Ded Flatbird", and dubbed themselves as "The world's greatest Def Leppard cover band."

Hysteria Setlist & Encore[edit]

Each night after intermission, Def Leppard came back to perform Hysteria in its entirety. This started with Phil Collen on an elevated platform playing the intro to "Women". An important note is that these were the first shows to feature the band playing the whole album front to back. Accordingly, they played the songs in a true-to-album style. Notably, "Rocket" was neither the extended nor shortened versions which have been played on recent tours, and "Pour Some Sugar On Me" was played with the original intro as heard on the album. Every night, the band played the same encore of its two biggest Pyromania hits, "Rock of Ages", and "Photograph".
