  • Location / Albuquerque, NM, USA
  • Venue / Tingley Coliseum @ New Mexico State Fairgrounds

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

The fourth time at this venue and a sold out show.

The venue is located to the East of the city centre and within the grounds of the New Mexico Expo at the New Mexico State Fairgrounds.

It was opened in 1957.

A show at the UTEP Special Events Center in El Paso, Texas was cancelled in late January due to ongoing issues surrounding Joe's infamous 'Greasy Mexicans' incident in September 1983.

There was a threat of disruption to this show and death threats made against Joe himself. The show was cancelled on 22nd January according to the local press and 4,000 tickets of 8,500 had been sold.

This show in Albuquerque which was originally scheduled for the 14th February was them moved to the 15th. This accounts for it being listed on he site up to now as the 14th but the 15th has been confirmed as the actual date.

They would not return to El Paso until the Euphoria tour in January 2000 when they played the same venue which by the time had changed its name to Don Haskins Center.

'Another Hit And Run' likely returned to the show after the extended setlists played in Denver for the 'In The Round-In Your Face' concert filming.

As with many shows on this leg the exact setlist is not 100% confirmed.
