  • Event / Live 8: The Long Walk To Justice

The first show by the band in this city since April 2003 on the X/Ten tour.

The first time at this venue.

The venue is located in the city centre and next to the Schuylkill River.

It was opened in February 1876.

This event was attended by around 1 million people.

The Live 8 shows were part of the largest TV/Radio/Internet broadcast in history with an estimated 5.5 billion people able to tune in according to press reports.

The biggest live appearance the band had been a part of.

The stage was set up in front of the museum and the crowd gathered along the Benjamin Franklin Parkway.

BBC Interactive's Philadelphia channel showed Lep live at about 4:06-4:20 local time.

BBC1 also broadcast ROA/PSSOM just at around 1am in a highlights show.

The band were introduced by Comedian Joe Conklin of WMMR radio saying: "Philadelphia! Please welcome Def Leppard!".

The band attended the dress rehearsal the day before playing 'ROA' and 'PSSOM' before going to the cancelled show in Camden.

Following this event the band travelled to Lancaster, PA for another show on the same day as part of the Rock 'n' Roll Double Header tour.

High quality audio and video exist from this show taken from the various broadcasts.
