Def Leppard played a show on 1st May 1993 in Gothenburg, Sweden on the Adrenalize tour and video footage is available.

The show took place at the Scandinavium venue.

The video shows the spectacular lasers that were used on this tour which by this time had switched back to a regular one end set up.

This was the band's first visit to the city since March 1988 when they also kicked off their Hysteria European tour in Sweden.

After playing In The Round shows in USA/Canada by themselves the band were now being supported by Ugly Kid Joe.

The full show was filmed by fans along with footage Ugly Kid Joe's opening set.

Watch both sets via the YouTube playlist and read some of Joe's speeches below.

By this time Phil had started to play a different guitar solo divided into two sections. Starting off acoustically before going full electric. Played for the first time the night before in Stockholm.

Joe had also cut down his over five minute speech before 'Gods Of War' just to a very brief introduction of Vivian.
