  • Location / Sheffield, England
  • Venue / Hallam FM Arena
  • Event / Feel The Noise

The first show by the band in this city since October 1999 on the Euphoria tour.

The fifth time at this venue.

The venue is located to the North of the city centre and not far from where the Don Valley Stadium used to be.

It was opened in May 1991 as Sheffield Arena by Queen Elizabeth II and first played the same day by Paul Simon.

From 2003 to 2007 it was known as Hallam FM Arena.

From 2007 to 2010 and 2015 to 2017 it reverted to Sheffield Arena.

From 2010 to 2015 it was called Motorpoint Arena Sheffield before its current name of FlyDSA Arena since 2017.

A radio sponsored concert organised by Hallam FM. The band were introduced on stage by local DJ and friend Dave Kilner.

The same four song setlist as the Stoke-On-Trent show earlier in the day with all songs played live.

The event lasted for well over two hours before the band came onstage.

Featuring mostly two or three song sets from pop acts (many more than listed below...it was f**king awful...).

It should be noted many Lep fans left before headliners Westlife came on (just as the "unbelievably" high pitched screaming started!).
