  • Location / Leicester, England
  • Venue / Students' Union Queen's Hall @ University Of Leicester

The first show by the band in this city since November 1979 on the Highway To Hell tour with AC/DC.

Another show on the six week UK club tour with Witchfynde and local acts in support.

The venue is located within the grounds of the University Of Leicester.

The band had already played a show in nearby Scraptoft in September 1979 at the Leicester Polytechnic.

This show took place at Queen's Hall which is one of the Students' Union buildings.

The venue is now known as the O2 Academy.

The November 1979 show with AC/DC took place at the same University but in the larger De Montfort Hall just to the North. A venue the band would headline themselves in April 1980 and on the 1987 UK 'Hysteria' tour.
