The venue was initially advertised as the Estadio Tecnologico, but this
changed to the Estadio Universitario - discovered only when the tickets
went on sale for this revised venue!
The Estadio Universitario de Nuevo León – nicknamed El Volcán ("the volcano") – is the home venue of the UANL Tigres.
Our thanks to Jose Carlos Gonzalez for sending over the ticket scan, and to Ramiro Diaz de Leon for the concert poster picture.

WARNING - SPOILERS AHEAD!
Do not read on if you don't want surprises to be spoilt, regarding what the band played!
Following on from an almost two week break, the band have now
resumed their tour, with the first of three nights in Mexico. Initial
comments are now starting to arrive, and report the band in fine form,
and an ecstatic crowd! More details on this show soon...
One interesting difference is that the prism/pyramid made out of
fluorescent light bulbs has made a reappearance, as the photos below
show. Will other props such as the wheel of fire make a similar
reappearance at some point, we wonder?
The first of these has come from Josue Sanchez Tapetillo, who has sent
over the front page from the March 3rd edition of Monterrey newspaper
"Milenio" (click on it to zoom in on Roger's picture).
The caption reads: "Roger Waters deleita. El considerado cerebro de importantes exitos de Pink
Floyd hizo vibrar a mas de 25000 fans en el Estadio Universitario."
Broadly speaking this translates as "Roger Waters delights. The
brain considered behind the most important songs of Pink Floyd,
thrilled more than 25,000 fans in the Estadio Universitario."
