Show Notes

The first show by the band in this city. A photo of the gig was included on the Hysteria inner sleeve showing the torential downpour that happened during Leppard's set. Backstage guests included Iron Maiden who had recently finished recording their "Somewhere in Time" album at Wisseloord Studios. Singer Bruce Dickinson reportedly came out and held an umbrella over Joe's head during 'Love And Affection'. Joe thanked him at the end of the song with - "Special thanks to Bruce Dickinson on umbrella!".

'Run Riot' dropped and replaced by 'Let It Go' in the setlist. Before this gig another MOR show had taken place at MTK Stadium in Budapest, Hungary with Scorpions, Ozzy, MSG, Bon Jovi and Warlock only.
