  • Location / Estero/Fort Myers, FL, USA
  • Venue / TECO Arena

The first show by the band in this village in Lee County.

The first time at this venue.

The venue is located in the centre of the village which is 15.6 miles to the South East of the city of Fort Myers.

Joe addressed the crowd with "Good Evening Fort Myers!" before 'Foolin'. The venue themselves and most bands list this arena as being in Estero.

It was opened in November 1998 as the Everblades Arena.

From 1998 to 2004 it was known as the TECO Arena.

It was then named as Germain Arena from 2004 to 2018 before changing to its current name of Hertz Arena.

'Too Late For Love' and 'Rock! Rock!' were dropped with the return of the 'High 'n' Dry' Side One opening.

Joe's vice sounded strained at this show and he explained that he was suffering from a bronchial infection.

Something he would suffer a much worse version of in 2015/2016. Fortunately this time he recovered without the need for any show postponements and/or cancellations.

A decent quality audience filmed video and audio version exist from this show.
