  • Location / Sheffield, England
  • Venue / Sheffield City Hall (Oval Hall)

The first show by the band in this city since July 1981 on the High 'n' Dry tour.

The third time at this venue.

The first show by Phil Collen in Sheffield as a member of Def Leppard.

Phil had played the venue before Def Leppard did in 1980 as a member of Girl when they opened for UFO (28th January 1980) and for Pat Travers (on 24th March 1980) who Lep would go on to support in the USA.

The venue is located in the city centre in Barker's Pool square and just one street away from the site of The Wapentake club and also close to the O2 Academy which the band played in 1980 as the Top Rank.

It was opened in September 1932.

The building is also close to many of the venues the band played in their early days and just over half a mile north of the Spoon Factory where they first rehearsed in 1977-1979.

The building actually contains three venues with the 2,271 capacity Irwin Mitchell Oval Hall being the largest and where the main concerts take place.
