  • Location / Dubuque, IA, USA
  • Venue / Five Flags Center

The first show by the band in this city.

The first time at this venue.

The venue is located in the downtown area of the city centre not far from the Port Of Dubuque beside the Mississippi River.

It was opened in 1979 and is used for basketball and ice hockey as well as concerts.

The five flags name comes from the flags that have flown of Dubuque since 1673 and includes the Stars and Stripes and, appropriately, the British Union Jack (view them below).

The neighbouring historic theatre was opened initially as Athenaeum Theater in 1846 and after various changes and a fire was reopened in 1910 as the Majestic Theater.

It is now called Five Flags Theater and is on the U.S. National register of Historic Places.

The arena stands beside it.

The band rejoined the Judas Priest tour alongside the Scorpions for this arena show.

Future Def Leppard member Vivian Campbell would go on to play Dubuque in April 2018 with his side band Last In Line.

This show was originally listed on the Tour History but taken off and believed to be a mistake.

It has since been confirmed.
