Def Leppard played a homecoming show at Don Valley Stadium in Sheffield, England on 6th June 1993.

The only UK date played on the 1993 Adrenalize European tour was also the first at the stadium with over 40,000 people in attendance.

Ugly Kid Joe, Thunder and Terrorvision were also on the bill. It was the biggest UK headline show the band had played and was filmed for the 'Visualize' and 'Video Archive' compilation releases. Audio tracks were also released as B Sides on various singles.

The show was aired by BBC Radio 1 the following weekend in a 90 minute concert special.

Joe had announced the show on 5th April 1993 live on the same radio station from the stadium just ahead of the European Adrenalize tour.

Footage was also used in two concert specials broadcast on UK and Japanese TV. The Japanese version has been posted a YouTube and can be viewed via the links below. It featured five songs not used on 'Visualize/Video Archive'.

Joe mentioned in May 2006 that the band were going to release the full show on a DVD with new 5.1 Surround Sound but the new version remains unreleased. This was probably due to the now settled dispute with Universal Records.
