Show Notes

The first known time the band played in this town. It is also the first show Rick Allen played with Def Leppard after joining the band on 27th November 1978. The band line-up was: Joe Elliott, Rick Savage, Steve Clark, Pete Willis and Rick Allen.

The show was a pre-Christmas dance event featuring a local act and a student disco.

Joe Elliott mentioned on his 31st March 2012 Planet Rock radio show that the band played Sex Pistols song 'Pretty Vacant' at 1978 Christmas show with this gig being the likely one. This was the first mention of the band having covered this song which was also played at another show.
