The first show by the band in this city since October 1987 on the Hysteria tour .

The first time at this venue.

The venue is located in the midtown Manhattan area of the city centre.

It was opened in February 1968 and is also known as The Garden or MSG.

One of the most famous arenas in the world located in New York City borough of Manhattan.

A charity show sponsored by radio station Z100 and billed as Stop The Violence.

It was organised to raise money for the Toys For Tots charity and was headlined by Def Leppard with Bryan Adams and Richard Marx opening.

The band played a shorter set and ran out of time after 'Love Bites'.

The only time the band had played at this famous venue until the 2018 tour with Journey.

The seats behind the main stage were opened up for fans making it a kind of one-end In The Round show.

'Let's Get Rocked' used as the opening song for the first time.

It would go on to open on the main tour from September onwards.
