Def Leppard played a show in Prague, Czech Republic on 16th October 1996 during the Slang tour and video footage is available.

The show took place at Sportovni Hala (Sports Hall) which has since been renamed as the Tipsport Arena.

The first ever visit by the band to the Czech Republic.

They would return to the country in November 2003 in Brno, July 2008 in Vizovice and again in May 2015 with a show in Ostrava and a second visit to Prague.

The band were now in the middle of the European leg of the Slang tour with support from UK band Terrorvision.

Footage from the show was featured in a local Prima TV special featuring interview with Vivian and Joe.

The live footage shown included 'Rock! Rock!', 'Foolin'' and a superb full version of 'Another Hit And Run' (a rare playing on this European tour leg).

The only other known performance on this tour in Europe was at the Exeter, England club show in November.

Four videos are available from the special which lasted for 25 minutes in total. View 40 photos on the show page.

Local translators talk over Vivian and Joe during their interviews.

Watch the four videos on this YouTube Playlist including live clips/interviews.
