Def Leppard 1980. Def Leppard 1980

Def Leppard started a two month long UK club tour in Aberdeen, Scotland on this day in 1980.

The show took place at the University Of Aberdeen on 18th January 1980.

The first show of 1980 and the band's first ever visit to the city.

It was also the opening night of a six week warm-up club tour around the UK after completing work on their debut album.

The 'On Through The Night' sessions had ended in early January and the band went straight into rehearsals for the tour.

The concert took place in the University's Students' Union building which was a popular concert venue in the city from the late 1960's up to the mid '90s.

During this tour all 11 new songs recorded for the album were included in the setlist.
