  • Location / Barcelona, Spain
  • Venue / Palau Blaugrana

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

The first time at this venue.

The venue is located 3.8 miles to the West of the city centre and close to the 99,354 capacity Nou Camp stadium home of Barcelona FC.

It was opened in October 1971 and renovated in 1994 and 2016.

The venue held 5,696 people at the time of the show but has since expanded to 7,585 people.

The venue name translates to "Blue and deep red Palace" matching the colours of Barcelona FC's kit.

The first visit to Barcelona following the incident in July 1981 when they were forced to play after headline act Rainbow.

They had initially vowed never to play in Spain again.

This show was originally listed for the 27th October before changes were made to the schedule.

A decent quality audience recording exists from this show.
