Rock legends Def Leppard and Whitesnake's joint UK and Ireland tour rolled into Belfast last night with a stomping performance at the SSE Arena.

Speaking before the gig, Def Leppard frontman Joe Elliott said: "I am very excited to be working with Whitesnake again.

"We had such a wonderful time when we did it back in 2008. It’s a great experience for rock fans to be able to see two great live bands on the same stage on the same night."
