  • Location / San Francisco, CA, USA
  • Venue / Bill Graham Civic Auditorium

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

The first time at this venue.

The venue is located in the city centre.

It was opened in March 1915 as Exposition Auditorium.

From 1916 to 1992 it was known as San Francisco Civic Auditorium.

Since 1992 it has been named after the late concert promoter Bill Graham.

Joe later said Metallica frontman James Hetfield attended this show and even asked Joe to sign an autograph backstage (as revealed by him in a radio interview).

A change in the setlist order for the first time in four shows.

'Stagefright' was played in place of 'Too Late For Love' and the setlist was slightly rearranged.

'Wasted' was also played in the USA for the first time since July 2000 (its only airing on the American leg of the 'Euphoria' tour).

A decent quality audience recording exists from this show.
