  • Location / Nottingham, England
  • Venue / Nottingham Boat Club

The first show by the band in this city since September 1979 on the Early Years tour.

The second time at this venue and first of two shows here in 1980.

Rick Allen would recognise this in December 2015 at the Nottingham Arena show by writing the #BoatClub1980 hashtag on his drum kit.

Another show on the six week UK club tour with Witchfynde and local acts in support.

The venue is located next to the River Trent and the City Ground stadium (home of Nottingham Forest F.C.).

It was opened in 1894 as the home of the Nottingham Rowing Club.

It hosted concerts between 1962 and 1982 including Led Zeppelin, Elton John, U2, Iron Maiden and T. Rex.

The building is now home to the Nottingham Britannia Rowing Club.
