  • Location / Frankfurt, West Germany
  • Venue / Festhalle Frankfurt

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

The second time at this venue.

The venue is located in the centre of the city and within the Messe Frankfurt complex of venues/exhibition halls.

It was opened in May 1909.

It was then renovated in the 1980s.

The band took part in a charity football match on 17th March at the 6,000 capacity Riederwaldstadion in the same city which also featured Steve Harris of Iron Maiden and other musicians.

A decent audience recording exists from this show.
