  • Location / Seattle, WA, USA
  • Venue / Seattle Center Coliseum

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

Another show supporting Billy Squier on his 'Emotions In Motion' tour.

The first time at this venue and first of two shows in this city on the 1983 tour.

The venue is located in the city centre and within the Seattle Center complex that also includes the Space Needle, Memorial Stadium and Museum of Pop Culture and on the coast of Elliott Bay.

It was opened in April 1962 as Washington State Pavilion.

It was then named as Washington State Coliseum from 1962 to 1962, Seattle Center Coliseum from 1964 to 1995.

And then KeyArena at Seattle Center from 1995 to 2018 when it closed down for a major renovation.

It reopened in 2021 as the Climate Pledge Arena with an increased capacity of 19,125.
