38 Years Ago DEF LEPPARD's PYROMANIA Album At Number 18 In The UK
Def Leppard's classic Pyromania album reached Number 18 on the UK Top 100 chart 38 years ago on this day in 1983.
The band's third studio album was released on (either) 28th February/4th March 1983 and entered the chart on this day at its peak position of 18.
It would only spend five weeks on the chart in its initial run. Falling to 31 in the second week.
Following the re-release of the 'Photograph' single in February 1984 it re-entered at Number 87 before falling out again after 2 weeks.
It's 8th and final week in the chart was in mid September 1987 when it re-entered for one week at Number 100. This was based on the success of the the newly released 'Hysteria' album.
U2 were at Number One on this day with their album 'War' which was the highest new entry.
Other rock acts on the chart that week included Thin Lizzy (04) and Journey (38).
