  • Location / Oakland, CA, USA
  • Venue / Oakland Civic Auditorium

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 Lake Merritt and next to the Lake Merritt Amphitheater.

It was opened in 1914 as Oakland Civic Auditorium.

In 1984 it was renamed as Kaiser Convention Center (full name Henry J. Kaiser Convention Center).

The venue was closed in 2006 and it is due to be renovated.

The venue for this show has been corrected to the right date.

An initially scheduled show on this date at the Santa Cruz Auditorium in Santa Cruz, CA was cancelled and replaced with this show which itself moved from the 25th May.

The venue was not the Oakland Coliseum but this one.

The initial tour schedule (as seen on the tour posters) was changed.
