  • Location / Nashville, TN, USA
  • Venue / Sommet Center

The first show by the band in this city.

The first time at this venue.

The venue is located in the city centre and close to the Cumberland River.

It was opened in December 1996 as the Nashville Arena.

From 1999 to to 2007 it was known as the Gaylord Entertainment Center and then the Sommet Center from 3007 to 2010 before changing to Bridgestone Arena.

It was renovated in 2007, 2011 and 2015.

July 2006 on the YEAH! tour. Joe celebrated his 49th birthday at this show.

Unlike previous 'birthday' shows the crowd was not led into singing Happy Birthday to Joe but a cake or drink was brought out during the acoustic section.

Nashville based singer Alison Krauss attended this show.

The same songs played as the previous show but with 'Let's Get Rocked' moved back to the encore and the main set ending with 'ROA'.

A decent quality audience recording exists from this show.
