  • Location / Newcastle, England
  • Venue / Mayfair Ballroom

The first show by the band in this city since July 1981 on the High 'n' Dry tour.

The sixth time at this venue.

The first venue plated after the band signed to Phonogram Records in August 1979.

The venue was located in the city centre just north of the River Tyne and a few streets from the larger City Hall venue.

It was opened in September 1961 and also sometimes called the Mayfair Suite.

The venue was demolished in 1999 and replaced by The Gate shopping centre.

A new pub and restaurant called The Mayfair Pub & Kitchen was opened in Newgate Street in 2019 but is not a concert venue.

A decent audience recording exists for this show.
