  • Location / Paris, France
  • Venue / Le Bataclan

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

The first time at this venue and first of two nights here.

A single show at this venue was included on the original tour schedule in February for 7th March before the date was changed.

Local acts supported the band on this tour leg and this show featured French band Sortilège.

The venue is located in the centre of Paris and less than two miles from Studio Des Dames where the band would record some of 'Hysteria' in June/July of 1985.

It was opened in February 1865.

The venue was renovated in 2006 and in 2016.

The second renovation was due to the terrorist attack in November 2015 which killed 90 people and wounded over 200 at a concert by the Eagles Of Death Metal.

A decent audience recording exists for this show.
