  • Location / Manchester, England
  • Venue / Manchester Evening News Arena / M.E.N. Arena

The first show by the band in this city since June 2008 on the Songs From The Sparkle Lounge tour.

The third time at this venue.

The venue is located in the city centre close to the Manchester Victoria Station and the National Football Museum.

It was first opened in July 1995 as the NYNEX Arena.

From 1998 to 2011 it was known as the Manchester Evening News Arena.

From 2011 to 2013 it was called Manchester Arena and again from 2015 onwards.

From 2013 to 2015 it was called Phones 4u Arena

The venue reopened in September 2017 having closed in May after the terror attack at an Ariana Grande concert.

Joe came out on stage during Motley Crue's set to lead the crowd in singing Happy Birthday to Nikki Sixx.

'Gods Of War' and 'Love Bites' returned to the setlist.

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