The second time at this venue which stopped hosting events in 2018 and is set to be replaced with a new arena.

The first time the band had performed in Richmond using their new In The Round stage set up.

This show was originally scheduled for 9th October 1987.

It was postponed and then rescheduled because of travel issues for the crew.

The venue is located in the down town area of the city and was previously home to the West Virginia Roughriders Arena Pro Football team.

It was opened in August 1971.

The arena was the largest in Virginia until the John Paul Jones Arena opened in 2006 in Charlottesville.
