Show Notes

The second performance by Def Leppard in their home city of Sheffield. According to the 1987 biography Animal Instinct the show was arranged by a local promoter called Bootleg Bill. The Sheffield Show was an annual local outdoor festival held in a park area. The band line-up was: Joe Elliott, Rick Savage, Steve Clark, Pete Willis and Tony Kenning.

The band had no staging or lights so when it got dark Joe's childhood friends Ian Flint and Andy Smith used their own car headlights to light the band.

Going Live 1993 UK TV Show - Joe Elliott Quote

"I would say the weirdest gig that I've ever done. which was actually before Rick joined the band was we played a field in Sheffield once and they just ran a power cable from a house and we'd plug the things in. And it went dark and nobody could see us so somebody drove two cars in front of us and turned their headlights on and we got paid three quid."
