  • Location / Newcastle, England
  • Venue / Newcastle City Hall

The first show by the band in this city since February 1983 on the Pyromania tour.

The third time at this venue.

The venue is located in the centre of the city and not far from the Newcastle United football ground St. James' Park and on the north side of the River Tyne.

It was opened in 1927 and is currently known as the O2 City Hall Newcastle.

It has hosted concerts from at least 1957 onwards.

'Hysteria' again left out of the set.

This show was delayed until 10:30pm.

The band had performed 'Pour Some Sugar On Me' for Top Of The Pops at the BBC TV Studios in London earlier in the day and had to be flown up after taping to make this show which as a result started late.

A decent quality audience recording exists from this show.
