  • Location / Buffalo, NY, USA
  • Venue / Buffalo Memorial Auditorium

The first show by the band in this city since June 1983 on the Pyromania tour.

The third time at this venue.

This show featured the very first playing of 'Love And Affection' in the USA.

It was the only recorded time it was performed in the country until the 22nd March 2013 VIVA! Hysteria residency opening night in Las Vegas.

The song was rarely played during the main Hysteria tour and the next known performance was in March 1988 in Europe.

Joe changed the verse line to "I'm just another man, you're just another girl." instead of the other way around as it is on the album (You're just another girl, I'm just another man.).

The venue was located in the south of the city near the Buffalo River. It was nicknamed as "The Aud".

It was opened in October 1940. It closed in 1996 and was then demolished in 2009.

It was replaced with the HSBC Arena/KeyBank Center which was built next to it.
