  • Location / Largo/Landover, MD, USA
  • Venue / Capital Centre

The first show by the band in this city.

The first time at this venue.

This show was played at one end of the venue due to weight issues. The arena had been set up for a Washington Capitals ice hockey match.

The band would eventually play In The Round here in 1992 with the lighter 'Adrenalize' stage.

The venue is located in Landover/Largo which are both described as unincorporated areas/communities rather than towns or cities.

Largo is actually 10 miles south east of Landover and 18 miles east of Washington DC. Landover is 9 miles east of Washington DC. like many other venues this one is either described as being in one of two places but is actually within Largo.

It was opened in December 1973 and demolished in December 2002 after being closed in 1999 and demolished in December 2002.

A decent quality audience recording exists from this show.
