  • Location / Wolverhampton, England

The first show by the band in this city since September 1979.

The first time at this venue.

Another show on the On Through The Night UK and World tour with Magnum and local/young acts in support.

The venue is located in the city centre.

It was opened in May 1938 and expanded in 2001.

A show supporting Slade.

Show Story from 'Animal Instinct' Biography

"Although headliners Slade constructed a ten foot stage extension for the show, they would not allow Joe to go out on it during Def Leppard's opening set. That left a total of about three inches between Rick's bass drum and the edge of the stage. Joe had to sing to one side of Rick's kit. To add to the misery, Rick left his wallet in a Wimpy hamburger bar, with £60 in it."
