  • Location / Exeter, England
  • Venue / The Lemon Grove @ UniversityOf Exeter
  • Event / Rockin' The Campus Acoustic Show

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

The first time at this venue.

The venue is located in and within the grounds of University Of Exeter.

It was opened in late 1989.

An exclusive charity club show sponsored by Coca Cola called "Rocking The Campus".

Venue capacity of just 700. Entry fee £2. Doors 7pm.

A contest was run by Coca Cola and the UK press for a University to win the chance to stage an exclusive show.

The band played many rare songs at this show. 'Turn To Dust' and 'Gift Of Flesh' were only performed a handful of times in 1996/1997.

The only known performance of 'Gift Of Flesh' in the UK.

'Billy's Got A Gun' and 'High 'N' Dry (Saturday Night)' had not been played in the UK since the first Hysteria tour in 1987.

Only HND has been played here since (October 2003 in Cambridge).

Like the 1997 club show in Buenos Aries, the Sex Pistols song 'Pretty Vacant' was played during the middle of AHAR.

A rare playing of Joe Elliott's all-time favourite song 'All The Young Dudes' ended the show.

Joe sang the lyrics to the second verse of LGR during the 1st verse. The band started the song again.

They also played snippets of 'Women', 'Stagefright' and Aerosmith's 'Walk this Way'.

Many thanks to Andy/Jay Tomkins for the setlist details and scans.

The audience recording contains the only known recording of 'Turn To Dust'.

A decent quality audience recording exists for this show with very rare and great setlist. 'Action' not included, 'Slang'/'Photograph' both cut slightly.
