A radio promo show took place for the X/Ten album in December 2002 at Cox Arena. The first American show of the 2002/2003 tour.

The last visit to the Sports Arena then took place on November 2005 during the Rock Of Ages tour with Bryan Adams and Ricky Warwick.

Joe Elliott - Vivian Campbell/Armageddon It Intro

"Thank you very much. Let's have a look at you. Look at that!. It's a beautiful thing, it really is. Looks good. It sounds good. Sounds amazing. Smells peculiar. Somebody down there is doing something that I thought was illegal. But maybe not any more. Smells great actually but I've forgotten what I was gonna say. Alright yeah. You come here, come on. Look who's here. That's what I was gonna say. He left hos home country of Northern Ireland in 1982. 35 years ago. To seek his fortune and landed in Los Angeles and 25 years ago landed in this wacky little thing that we call Def Leppard. He is the boy who puts the fast in Belfast. Ladies and gentleman can you make a lot of noise please. can you make a lot of noise please!. For Mr. Vivian Campbell!."
