  • Location / East Rutherford, NJ, USA
  • Venue / Continental Airlines Arena

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

The 7th time at this venue.

The venue is located in the East Rutherford area of New Jersey and within the Meadowlands Sports Complex,

It stands not far from the 82,500 capacity MetLife Stadium (formerly Giants Stadium) and is just 10 miles to the west of New York City.

It was opened in July 1981 as the Brendan Byrne Arena. It was also known unofficially as the Meadowlands or Meadowlands Arena.

The venue was then named as Continental Airlines Arena from 2007 to 2015 before renaming as the IZOD Center until its closure in April 2015.

Since closing as a venue the arena has reverted to the name Meadowlands Arena and it used for rehearsals by bands and for TV production.

The show was originally announced as being at the Sovereign Bank Arena in Trenton before being changed to this larger venue.

A decent quality audience filmed video exists from this show.
