  • Location / Ottawa, ON, Canada
  • Venue / Civic Centre Theatre

The first show by the band in this city.

The first time as this venue.

The venue is located to the south of the city centre and part of the TD Place complex and next to Lansdowne Park

It is connected to the 24,000 capacity TD Place stadium.

It was opened in December 1967.

The name of he venue changed to Urbandale (2009–2010), Rona Centre (2010–2011) and J. Benson Cartage Centre (2011–2012).

Since 2012 it has been known as TD Place Arena.

The band dropped 'Don't Shoot Shotgun' at this show and added 'Travellin' Band' as an extra encore.

They started it off with a little bit of 'Radar Love' before the count-in and the version lasted for almost 14 minutes in all with snippets of four other songs.

A venue announcer/crew member told the crowd to stop throwing fireworks around before the show started, warning if any land on stage the show will stop.

The audience recording was not circulated among fans until February 2010.

It includes the whole show apart from 'PSSOM' and the 'Dirty Harry' recorded intro and is of decent quality.
