  • Location / Ipswich, England
  • Venue / Ipswich Regent Theatre

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

The second time at this venue.

The venue is located in the city centre.

It was opened in 1921.

The venue was initially named as the Gaumont Theatre and changed to Regent Theatre in September 1991.

It was refurbished in 2007

The setlist was changed up again with 'Let's Get Rocked' as the surprise opener. 'Let It Go' was moved to the encore section and 'Rock! Rock!' was dropped.

Joe told the crowd the story of the band's boat trip holiday on the Norfolk Broads in 1978 when they saw UFO at this venue which led to the first show at Westfield School.

A story Joe would recount many more times years later on his weekly Planet Rock radio show.
