Notes: A radio promotion gig, referred to by fans as "The Secret Desert Show," or "VLA Show." Location for the array is listed as Sorcorro, but the VLA radio observatory is actually closer to Magdalena, N.M. The site opened in 1980, and contains 27 giant (81-foot) antennas arrainged in a Y pattern. Scientists use the array to observe signals from stars, planets and other astronomical objects.

In a press release issued about the show, Geoff Tate said: "We had heard of this site for years. We thought this location was the most sophisticated listening post on earth and felt it was particularly appropriate with the theme of our new album."
