Def Leppard ended their 14 month Hysteria world tour in Tacoma, WA, USA on this day in 1988.

The biggest indoor audience of the tour (26,962 fans attended) with tickets costing $18.50 and the total gross at $494,579. Their 1987 show at the same venue grossed $196,718 and was attended by 11,499 fans.

The longest tour in the band's career at that point had started in Dublin, Ireland on 27th August 1987.

This show turned out to be the last full live concert with Steve Clark as a member of the band.

He eventually died in January 1991 after his long battle with alcoholism came to a sad end whilst on a six month leave of absence from the making of the 'Adrenalize' album.
