  • Location / Indianapolis, IN, USA
  • Venue / Indiana State Fairgrounds Grandstand
  • Event / Indiana State Fair

The first show by the band in this city since October 1987 on the indoor leg of the tour.

The first time at this venue.

The venue is located to the North East of the city centre and within the Indiana State Fairgrounds complex.

The fairgrounds have been used since 1852 and used for major concerts since at least 1979.

A show the band were advised to cancel before show time due to bad weather.

They decided to play anyway during a thunderstorm.

The show was stopped for about 20 minutes after 'TLFL' but then continued to the end.

The band stated in later interviews that most of the outdoor shows on this leg were affected by rain.

This show took place at the Indiana State Fairgrounds and not the Deer Creek Music Center.

A decent quality audience recording exists from this show.
