  • Location / Paris, France
  • Venue / Le Bataclan

A second night at this venue.

The second time at this venue and second of two nights here.

A show in Orleans was originally planned for this date (at Salle du Baron where they would have been supported by Bloody Witch) but it was ultimately cancelled and replaced with a second night at this venue. Confirmed by an attendee and the French music press. View the ticket in the Photos Galleries section.

As with the cancelled UK show in Nottingham, the band would return to play a show in Orleans later in the year.

November 1983 Paris Media Review Excerpt

"Exactly eight months after their two Bataclan concerts (March 8 and 9, 1983), Def Leppard was again in Paris for a concert at Espace Balard."

Local acts supported the band on this tour leg and this show featured French band Sortilège.

The venue is located in the centre of Paris and less than two miles from Studio Des Dames where the band would record some of 'Hysteria' in June/July of 1985.

It was opened in February 1865.

The venue was renovated in 2006 and in 2016.

The second renovation was due to the terrorist attack in November 2015 which killed 90 people and wounded over 200 at a concert by the Eagles Of Death Metal.

Future Leppard Vivian Campbell would play here with Thin Lizzy in January 2011.
