Def Leppard played the final show of the Pyromania world tour 36 years ago on this day in 1984 in Bangkok, Thailand.

The show took place in front of 6,000 fans at the Indoor Stadium Hua Mark.

It was the last show to be played before Rick Allen's 31st December 1984 car accident.

The following day the band flew to Dublin, Ireland to start work on the Hysteria album.

The tour lasted for one year and was the first to feature 'new' guitarist Phil Collen.

The year long world had started with a UK/European leg in February/March 1983 before moving on to North America until late September.

A second run of European/UK shows took the tour up to late December 1983.

They visited Japan, Australia and finally Thailand for the very first time in January/February 1984.

At the time the Pyromania tour was the longest the band had ever done with over 130 shows played in 12 months.
