The first show by the band in this town.

The first time at this venue.

This show was added to the initially announced schedule.

Another show on the On Through The Night UK and World tour with Magnum and local/young acts in support.

The venue was located in Carlyon Bay which is 2 miles east of the town centre of St. Austell.

Carlyon Bay is a set of three beaches stretching for 2 miles along the coast.

It was opened in 1932 as the Riviera Club.

It was renamed as the Cornish Leisure World, Cornwall Coliseum and also New Cornish Riviera Lido which hosted major concerts up to at least 1980.

Demolition work of the venue site began in April 2015 but part of the main building can still be seen on Street View below.

The opener for this show was Baby Jane, another New Wave Of British Heavy Metal band.

They had at least one released song called 'Baby' that was released on the 'Muthas Pride' EP alongside songs by Wildfire, Quartz and White Spirit.

A single related to the 'Metal For Muthas' album releases that also featured Iron Maiden and Samson.
