  • Location / Buffalo, NY, USA
  • Venue / Buffalo Memorial Auditorium

The first show by the band in this city.

The first time at this venue.

The venue was located in the south of the city near the Buffalo River. It was nicknamed as "The Aud".

It was opened in October 1940. It closed in 1996 and was then demolished in 2009.

It was replaced with the HSBC Arena/KeyBank Center which was built next to it.

The Scorpions tour poster showed a concert in Niagra Falls, NY on this date but the venue and location were moved to Buffalo when the tour schedule was rearranged.

The original venue was likely the Niagara Falls Convention And Civic Center.
