Def Leppard played a show in Stockholm, Sweden during the Adrenalize tour on 30th April 1993 and played a song in tribute to Mick Ronson.

The concert at the Globen Arena was the opening night of the main European Adrenalize tour that ended at Don Valley Stadium.

As a tribute to Mick Ronson who died on 29th April 1993 they played the first verse and chorus of 'Ziggy Stardust' during the acoustic medley section.

Joe explained this to the crowd before they played the song. Sadly the video of this has been removed from YouTube.

Watch 'Have You Ever Needed Someone So Bad' from this show via the playlist as posted on YouTube by Andy.

A fan photo taken from the front row was also posted in 2017 on Instagram - view it below.

30th April 1993 Stockholm, Sweden - Joe Elliott Quote

"Well we arrived at the gig this afternoon to do a soundcheck. About four O'Clock we got a phone call that wasn't particularly pleasant. A friend of ours that a lot of people over here may well know died last night."

"He was the guitar player who some people have had the privilege to play with him like Bob Dylan, Ian Hunter and David Bowie."

"The guys name is Mick Ronson and we'd like to play a little tune to pay tribute to the guy. God bless you Mick wherever you are."
