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

Tesla joined the band on stage for the last show during 'Travellin' Band' after a long speech by Joe thanking them and their own road crew.

He also revealed that the band would return for a summer tour in North America which had yet to be officially announced.

Footage from this show shot by a Tesla road crew member was released on YouTube in 2016 and features clips of the band during 'Travellin' Band' and many songs from Tesla's own opening set.

The venue is located to the North of the city.
