Don Valley stadium: a list of concerts

Concerts at the stadium from 1993 to 2006 – with videos

A previous post that mentioned getting more live music at Don Valley stadium caused me to search* the internet for some videos of shows at the venue.

Some of the clips I found are from the height of summer which seems a long way off following the dark and foggy weather Sheffield has had over the last couple of days.

So think back to summers gone by and the artists that have played at Don Valley stadium – although I seem to recall that it threw it down when the Stones played back in 2006.

* by the way, I didn’t search that hard for Celine Dion clips

  1. Now that’s made me go rummaging through various boxes of accumulated junk and memorabilia.

    I’ve dug out tickets for Def Leppard in June 93 and also one that isn’t on your list: Rolling Stones on Sunday 9th July 1995. Pic of tickets is here, sadly no photos or videos from the events. I seem to remember the security gorillas searching people for cameras and drinks and other terrible contraband items on the way in. We managed to get an entire picnic bag past one particularly incompetent security gorilla at the Leppard gig though, including lots of beer. :^)

    Both gigs on blazing hot days, if I remember correctly.

    Thanks for those – I have added the other Stones gig to the list. How times have changed now every gig is videoed and photographed by everyone there…
