Def Leppard played a Pyromania world tour show in Melun, France on 15th March 1983 and pro shot video footage is available.

The final night of the first leg of the Pyromania tour of Europe and the UK.

A number of older songs would be played for the last time including 'Lady Strange', 'Overture' and 'Rocks Off'.

These songs were retired from the show in advance of the US tour which would begin just a few days later.

The tenth French show of the Pyromania tour. They would return to France in October/November 1983 and play 13 more headline shows.

At 23 dates in all, this was the most shows played by the band in one country outside the USA on any tour since they began headlining there in April 1983.

A local French TV show broadcast six songs from this concert including the final performance of 'Lady Strange'.
