This was a special club show for only 200 fans with footage used in the 'C'mon C'mon' promo video and live songs included on the 2011 'Mirrorball (Live & More)' album.
The first visit to this city since June 2006.
Kerrang! - Online Review Quote
"Tonight is a launch show for that album, Songs From The Sparkle Lounge, with a free bar for the media upstairs and just a few hundred hardcore fans downstairs in a venue with a capacity less than one tenth of the 10,000 who'll be checking out the quintet next month. And tonight Def Leppard are fantastic. If this was only about nostalgia and '80s uber anthems - Animal, Pour Some Sugar On Me, Photograph, Rocket - it'd still be great, but the best thing about tonight is how strong Leppard's new songs are."
