  • Event / Red River Valley Fair

The first show by the band in this city.

The first time at this venue.

The venue is located in West Fargo which is a part of the city of Fargo and part of the Red River Valley Fairgrounds.

The fair takes place exactly 6.8 miles West of Fargo city centre.

the fair was first held in 1911.

The fair has hosted concerts since at least 1975.

The shows during the fair take place near the Grandstand at the Red River Valley Speedway.

The stage at this outdoor festival suffered a partial collapse but the band played the show with minimal lighting rather than postpone or cancel.

The band's show was delayed for a few hours and Uriah Heep had to cancel their opening set.
