The first show by the band in this town.

The first time at this venue.

The venue is located in the seaside report town of Salthill which is 1.5 miles South West of the city centre of Galway.

It was opened in 1973.

The show took place in the Events Centre of the Leisureland "fitness, leisure and events venue".

U2 played four early shows at the venue in 1980 and 1982.

"After again raising the roof of Leisureland in Galway the next evening - same set, a shot of courage from the same bottle of brandy - Def Leppard headed for the town of Limerick."
