  • Location / Sheffield, England
  • Venue / Virgin Megastore
  • Event / Acoustic Promo Show/Christmas Lights Switch-On

The first show by the band in this city since October 1995 on the Vault promo tour.

The first time at this venue.

The venue was located in the city centre.

It was opened in the late 1980 and closed down in 2009.

A promo acoustic show for only 200 competition winners at a Virgin Megastore in the city centre.

The area has now been turned into the Orchard Square Shopping Centre.

This was the first performance in the band's home city since another acoustic gig at the Wapentake club on the Vault tour in October 1995.

The band took part in the switching on of the City's Christmas lights earlier in the evening (see Fan Photos section).

This is an ongoing tradition in the UK where celebrities or well-known figures switch on the lights in the run up to Christmas.

The full setlist is unknown but would have included 'PSSOM'.
