  • Location / Cardiff, Wales
  • Venue / Motorpoint Arena Cardiff

The first show by the band in this city since December 2015 on the 2015 World Tour.

The fourth time at this venue.

The venue is located in the city centre and not far from the Principality Stadium and the River Taff.

It was opened in September 1993 as Cardiff International Arena & Convention Center.

From 2000 to 2016 it was known as Cardiff International Arena.

Since 2016 it has been called Motorpoint Arena Cardiff.

The first ever playing of the full 'Hysteria' album in Wales.

The band's fourth time at this smaller arena venue which is located in the centre of Cardiff, not far from the Principality Stadium and the River Taff.

'Gods Of War', 'Don't Shoot Shotgun', 'Run Riot', 'Excitable' and 'Love And Affection' were all played for the first time in Cardiff. The movable video screens used for the intro and above the lighting rig at previous shows were not used here due to the lower venue roof.
