Show Notes

The first show by the band in this city. The first of six Irish warm-up shows to prepare for the Monsters Of Rock tour. The first time Rick Allen had played live with Def Leppard since losing his left arm on New Year's Eve 1984.

Rick played the first three songs on his own with Status Quo drummer Jeff Rich joining in after that for the rest of the show. Two news songs from 'Hysteria' were debuted - 'Love And Affection' and 'Run Riot'. The band played a longer set on this Irish warm-up tour including 'BOTH/Switch 625' which were not played on the Monsters Of Rock shows.

The setlist included the first performances of 'Too Late For Love' and two as yet unreleased tracks from the upcoming 'Hysteria' album - 'Run Riot' and 'Love And Affection'.
