  • Location / London, England
  • Venue / Wembley Arena

A second night in this city and at this venue.

The fourth time at this venue and second of two nights here.

The venue is located in the Wembley Park area of North West London and stands next to the 90,000 capacity Wembley Stadium on the same complex.

It was opened in July 1934 as the Empire Pool and is the second largest currently used arena in London after The O2.

The venue was renovated in 2005 to 2006 and reopened on 2nd April 2006 with an increased capacity and with the main front entrance moved from the East side of the venue to the West.

In 1978 the name was changed to Wembley Arena and then to The SSE Arena, Wembley in 2014.

The band last played a full show here in June 1992 at Earls Court Arena.

This second night was added to the schedule after this one had sold out.

The final night of the main 'Slang' UK tour.

A show in Aberdeen was included in the initial tour schedule as promoted by MTV Europe in May 1996.

The Newcastle show took it's place.

Three other UK shows (Cardiff/Bournemouth/Brighton) were also initially scheduled for the 29th/30th November/1st December but were later removed from the tour before the dates were announced and tickets went on sale.

'Turn To Dust' played in place of 'Deliver Me'.
