The first show by the band in this city.

The first time at this venue and festival.

The venue is located in the centre of the city.

The festival was first held in 1977 and incorporates events all over the city each year.

This show was part of an annual music festival in the city which incorporates over 200 acts over 13 different stages/venues. It ran from 1st to 10th April and the major shows were held in a temporary tent like venue known as the Stadium or Le Stadium which is set up in a car park area. Located one street away from the address given for the festival.

An extra band called Little Bob Story played before M.S.G. at this show. The 1988 European/UK tour programme lists another date in Angers, France for April 7th.

This show was taken off the schedule before the tour started and was not played. No venue was listed.

An outdoor show and the last date of the 'Hysteria' European tour.

Michael Schenker of support band M.S.G. came out on stage during 'Hysteria' to surprise the band wearing only his underpants (See Photo Galleries).

A decent audience recording exists for this show.
