  • Location / Dublin, Ireland
  • Venue / Ambassador Theatre

The first show by the band in this city since October 1999 on the Euphoria tour.

The first time at this venue and first of two nights. Also the opening night of the 2003 X/Ten UK and Ireland tour.

A change up for the setlist from the 2002 North American tour leg with 22 songs played.

'Too Late For Love' was played in Dublin for the first time since June 1992 at the first show of the 'Adrenalize' tour.

Joe introduced Rick's "Rock of Ages" intro with 'Rick Allen's four words of the Irish language'.

The band were supported by Ricky Warwick who was the support act here in October 1999 with former band The Almighty.

The venue is located in the centre of the city on the North Side of the River Liffey and next to the Rotunda Hospital.

It was opened in 1764 and became a cinema in 1897.

It hosted music concerts from 2001 to 2008 before returning to being a cinema and event centre.

On Friday 8th February the band performed 'Long Long Way To Go' on 'The Late Late Show' which was broadcast live on RTE1 TV.

Joe referenced these two shows as well as offering a guest pass to the host during a brief exchange after the song ended.
