  • Location / Leeds, England
  • Venue / Queens Hall

The first show by the band in this city since December 1980 on the On Through The Night UK club tour.

The first time at this venue.

The venue was located in the city centre next to Leeds Station railway station and close to the River Aire.

It was opened in the 1950s as the Swinegate Tram Depot and reopened in 1961 as the Queens Hall music venue.

It was closed and demolished in 1989 and the site is now a multi-storey car park.

Sadly this was the last time Steve Clark would perform live in England.

Leeds is located in the county of West Yorkshire just over 30 miles from Sheffield (in South Yorkshire).

A decent audience recording exists from this show which is sometimes known as 'Kings Of Queen's Hall'.
