  • Location / London, England
  • Venue / Carling Apollo Hammersmith

The first show by the band in this city since October 2003 on the X/Ten tour at the same venue.

The 13th time at this venue.

The venue is located in the Hammersmith area of the city next to the Hammersmith Flyover/A4 road and not far from the River Thames and Riverside Studios which the band would play in June 1999 for the 'TFI Friday' TV show.

It was opened in March 1932 as the Gaumont Palace.

It was then given its most famous name of Hammersmith Odeon from 1962 to 1992.

After that it became Labatt's Apollo (1992-1996), Hammersmith Apollo (1996-2002, 2006-2009 and 2013), Carling Apollo Hammersmith (2002-2006), HMV Hammersmith Apollo (2009-2012).

It was redeveloped in 2013 when it was given its current name of Eventim Apollo.

'Love Bites' dropped for this show possibly due to time issues as the show ran over to 11:15pm.

Cybernauts member Dick Decent once again guested on 'WLAHC' playing keyboards and singing background vocals.

Backstage guests included Brian May, Paul Cook and Simon Laffy from Manraze.

The second of the two UK shows and final night of the European/UK YEAH! tour.
