Ah, you're one of the few that can state that they saw Leppard as an opening band.
I saw them open for Billy Squier in (I think) 1983 at the Brendan Byrne Arena (NJ). By the end of that tour, they were the hottest band in the world with "Pyromania".
Cheap Trick-decent band that doesn't disappoint once you hear them again after many years (unlike, say, Loverboy!). "Need Your Love" was the tune off Live at Budoken that I liked the most followed by "Clock Strikes Ten".
Around that same time, I saw Zebra open for Loverboy. That's just so funny on so many levels in this day and age. Randy Jackson is truly one of the best rock musicians in the world, while the clowns from Loverboy wear cheap leather pants poorly.
