Songs Played - 3
|01||Twice in Ottawa, ON.|
|02||On UK TV in January 1993.|
|03||On European TV in January 1993.|
'I Wanna Touch U' (as it turns out) was not played live. The band 'performed to' the playback audio of the studio version for the recording of the promo video during the last In The Round show in Ottawa, ON in April 1993. It was confirmed by a attending fan that the song was played twice over the PA as the band performed for the video shoot.
'Heaven Is' was played as a mostly playback performance on UK TV show 'Top Of The Pops' in January 1993. Notable for Joe singing the lead vocal live over the backing track. The only known (almost) live performance of the song.
The electric studio version of 'Tonight' was performed on at least two European TV shows in January 1993 during the brief UK/European promo tour. The closest the band ever got to performing the electric version live.
def leppard tour 1992/1993 - pa intro music
Songs Played - 2
|01||Dirty Harry Speech||By Clint Eastwood at all shows.|
|02||Dirty Harry/||From 16th July 1988 onwards|
A quote by Clint Eastwood from the 1971 movie 'Dirty Harry' was played as the intro music at every show on the main Adrenalize world tour. It featured the classic lines:
"I know what you're thinking. "Did he fire six shots or only five?" Well to tell you the truth in all this excitement I've kinda lost track myself. But being this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: "Do I feel lucky?" Well, do ya, punk?".
Following the quote Phil and Vivian would start off 'Stagefright' as Joe sang "I said welcome to our show!" leading to the curtain fall as the song kicked in. Just before the 'Victim of my vices' line.
This intro was used as it had been on the 1987/1988 'Hysteria' tour from 19th June 1992 in Dublin until 6th September 1992 in Rapid City, SD.
From the 11th September 1992 show in Salt Lake City, UT until the end of the June 1993 Japanese tour, the intro was modified with the end of the Dirty Harry quote "you've got to ask yourself one question" leading to Joe saying 'Do ya wanna get rocked?' and the band starting the show with 'Let's Get Rocked'. After this the Live Pyromania Album Intro was played before starting the show with 'Rock! Rock!'.
