The first show by the band in this city since September 1992 on the Adrenalize tour.

The first time at this venue.

The venue is located in the city centre and within the Mandalay Bay Resort And Casino complex.

It was opened in March 1999.

The official first night of the main US tour after the radio sponsored show in San Diego.

Phil Collen celebrated his 45th birthday at this show.

A birthday cake was brought on stage for Phil and Joe had the crowd sing Happy Birthday to him.

Also spotted at the hotel bar were (the band), Vivian's wife Julie, Lorelei Shellist, Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, Steven Tyler, Joe Perry.

Lots of fans got to meet the band there.

Many musicians were in town for the upcoming Billboard Awards at the same venue.

A longer setlist for this opening of the main US tour and very similar to the Japanese shows.

'Ring Of Fire' made it's live debut in the USA along with new songs 'You're So Beautiful' and 'LLWTG'.

A decent quality audience recording exists from this show which also includes Ricky Warwick's opening set.
