Show Notes

A return to Donington Park 23 years after the 1986 return of Rick Allen at the then Monsters Of Rock festival. This new show was the first time the band headlined a major UK festival and the largest crowd played to in the UK.

'Action' and 'C'mon C'mon' were streamed live during the show by the festival website. They were again joined by Dick Decent on keyboards for WLAHC. Joe sang the first line of chorus two at the start of 'C'mon C'mon' - a minor mishap that didn't affect the others. Joe later gave an emotional speech when introducing Rick Allen before 'Rock Of Ages'.

Four songs - 'Hysteria', 'Animal', 'Armageddon It', 'PSSOM' were later broadcast on various VH1 TV shows.
