Retford, England - Tour Story

Def Leppard At Retford Porterhouse - Animal Instinct 1987 Quotes

At Peter Martin and Frank Stuart-Brown's invitation, talent scouts from eleven major English record companies and booking agencies attended the show to see what the Leppard excitement was all about.

"It was so hot in there, you could part the atmosphere." says Rick Allen.

"There is nothing worse than the smell of hot bodies and this mirrored wall behind the stage and it had all this condensation on it, water running down the wall."

"Russ (Russell Major) was behind me, literally pouring water over my head to keep me cool."
