Def Leppard recently played a seven-song set for YouTube’s YouTube Presents series at Hollywood’s House of Blues, marking a great warmup for the band’s upcoming Rock of Ages tour with Poison and Lita Ford.

Def Lep opened with “Rock of Ages,” which lends itself to the title of the upcoming Tom Cruise-starring Rock of Ages that hits theaters this week.

Their set also included “Foolin’,” “Animal,” “Hysteria,” “Bringin’ on the Heartbreak,” “Pour Some Sugar on Me” and “Let It Go.”
