Show Notes

The first show in the band's home city since September 1987 on the Hysteria tour. Joe was interviewed live on local TV backstage one hour before the show and talked about the bands first show at the City Hall in 1987 which suffered technical problems. This second night was added on after announcing the initial tour dates. In a Leppard-like twist of fate this show also suffered from technical problems.

The first problem was during 'Hysteria' when the sound cut out and had to be restored - just before Joe was asking for an acoustic guitar. They carried on with the set until after BOTH when Joe played the new acoustic song 'From The Inside' by himself on acoustic guitar. The first ever playing of this song, unreleased at the time. Only ever playing in the UK/Ireland and previously known from the UK Channel 4 TV show in June 1991 "Friday At The Dome", where he sang it accompanied by Liam from the Hothouse Flowers (see 'Visualize'). Also the first sighting of anyone from the band in the UK since Steve's death. Trivia - The presenter of this show, now working on US TV was Craig Ferguson.
