Single Notes By dltourhistory

The fifth single from 'Adrenalize' was released in April 1993. 'Tonight' was the second ballad from the album in the UK and reached number 34 on the UK Top 40. It only reached number 62 in the US.

The single was released over two CDs in the UK. The first being a 2CD Z Pack with space for both CDs. The front was etched with the Lep logo and single title. You could see through to the artwork on an insert sleeve. The 12" had a picture of Rick on the back completing the set of five. Two more live tracks from Bonn were included on various formats and one from the Freddie Mercury tribute (feedback edited out). This single was the last to be released on 12" in the UK (until 'C'mon C'mon' in 2008).
