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

The second time at this venue.

The venue is located in West Fargo which is a part of the city of Fargo and part of the Red River Valley Fairgrounds.

The fair takes place exactly 6.8 miles West of Fargo city centre.

the fair was first held in 1911.

The fair has hosted concerts since at least 1975.

The shows during the fair take place near the Grandstand at the Red River Valley Speedway.

The first show in the Fargo area since playing the Fargo Dome in August 1993 on the Adrenalize tour.

The band had to cut the set short due to high winds and storms.

Reminiscent of when they played here in 1983 on the Pyromania tour and had a minor stage roof collapse but carried on playing.

Another shorter setlist played but unfinished due to the weather conditions.

Joe announced that against local officials advice they would play one more song (PSSOM) before ending the set.

A decent quality audience recording exists from this show.
