  • Location / London, England
  • Venue / Hammersmith Odeon

The first show by the band in this city since the February warm-up show at the Marquee Club.

The Pyromania album was released in the UK on this day after its North American release in late January.

The seventh time at this venue and second time as headliners.

The venue is located in the Hammersmith area of the city next to the Hammersmith Flyover/A4 road and not far from the River Thames and Riverside Studios which the band would play in June 1999 for the 'TFI Friday' TV show.

It was opened in March 1932 as the Gaumont Palace.

It was then given its most famous name of Hammersmith Odeon from 1962 to 1992.

After that it became Labatt's Apollo (1992-1996), Hammersmith Apollo (1996-2002, 2006-2009 and 2013), Carling Apollo Hammersmith (2002-2006), HMV Hammersmith Apollo (2009-2012).

It was redeveloped in 2013 when it was given its current name of Eventim Apollo.

A second home town show for Phil Collen after his debut at The Marquee Club in February. Joe introduced him before 'Let It Go'.

Joe Introduction for Phil - "OK I think it's about time I introduced you to someone. He used to be a Girl, but he got better! Ladies and Gentleman, our new guitarist Mr. Phil Collen." Although his first time with Def Leppard, he had played here at least five times before supporting both UFO and Pat Travers with Girl.
