  • Location / Cedar Rapids, IA, USA
  • Venue / US Cellular Center

The first show by the band in this city since December 1999 on the Euphoria tour.

The fifth time at this venue.

The venue is located in the city centre and not far from the Cedar River.

It was opened in January 1979 as Five Seasons Center.

Since 2000 it has been renamed as the U.S. Cellular Center.

The venue was closed and renovated from July 2011 to June 2013.

The final show of 2002 with the tour picking up again in February 2003 in the UK and Ireland.

The return of the 'High 'n' Dry' side one opening to the setlist with no other major changes.

Rick's drum kit had major issues during 'Rock Of Ages' with the snare sound not working properly throughout. The band played the entire song despite this.

Rick played a few beats on his snare just before 'Love Bites' with Joe then saying "A small technical hitch has just been fixed. The gremlins of Christmas...".

A decent quality audience recording exists from this show.
