LAS VEGAS (CelebrityAccess) — British rock legends Def Leppard kicked off their headlining Las Vegas residency “Def Leppard Hits Vegas: The Sin City Residency,” to a sold-out crowd at Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino on Wednesday night.
Produced by Live Nation and Caesars Entertainment, the show features the veteran rockers mining their catalog to perform fan favorites such as “Love Bites”, “Pour Some Sugar on Me” and “Animal.”
As well, for their opening show, the band performed an acoustic set that included material the band has never performed in front of a live audience.
While Vegas was once seen as the venue of last resort for touring artists, numerous high profile acts have performed residencies there in recent years, following the success of Canadian singer Celine Dion’s decade-long Vegas run. Zappos has hosted residencies by Sheryl Crow, The Backstreet Boys, Gwen Stefani, J-Lo, Florida Georgia Line, Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears, and Pitbull among others.
Def Leppard are slated to perform 10 shows at the venue through September 7th.
