  • Location / Las Vegas, NV, USA
  • Venue / The Joint @ Hard Rock Hotel

The first show by the band in this city since December 2002 on the first leg of the North American tour.

The first time at this venue.

The venue is located in the Paradise area of central Las Vegas and connected to the Hard Rock Hotel And Casino and close to the McCarran International airport.

It was opened in March 1995 and later renovated in 2009.

The venue and hotel were closed in February 2020.

As predicted 'WLAHC' was played in the US for the first time ever.

It was only previously played in North America during the acoustic Vault tour of 1995 and only in Canada.

The rest of the setlist also featured changes with 'Action' replacing 'Let It Go' as the show opener (the second time after Ipswich that it hasn't opened the show).

'BOTH' and 'Switch 625' were both dropped and the end order of the main set was slightly rearranged.

A decent quality audience recording exists from this show.
