Def Leppard 1989. In The Round-In Your Face

Def Leppard began filming their first ever live concert video In The Round-In Your Face 34 years ago today in Denver, Colorado.

The show was the first of two sold out nights (12th/13th February 1988) at the 17,000 seat McNichols Sports Arena.

The shows were attended by 31,105 fans with a total gross of $542,812.

Tesla were the support act having been with them since the tour had started in August 1987.

Most of the footage/audio used was recorded at the second night on 13th February. The band were nearing the end of the the first five and a half month leg of the US Hysteria tour which had begun on 1st October 1987 in Glens Falls, NY.

The 'In The Round-In Your Face' VHS video was eventually released in September 1989 almost one year after the tour ended. Prior to the full length live video, footage was debuted in the highly successful 'Pour Some Sugar On Me' and 'Armageddon It' promo videos. They featured a mix of black and white sound check clips and colour footage from the main live shows.
