At some point during the Hot Space US Tour Brian smashed his JB replica. Does anyone know which gig?

I have seen pictures that Brian used a 'Flying V' during the Oakland show (on the 7th September 1982) so I assume at one of the dates between the 21-07-82 to 04-09-82.

Thanks for your help.

Didn't he trash that in New Jersey? Tossed it right off the stage from what I recall reading.

Yeah it was the Meadlowlands Gig in New Jersey in 1982. There's an audience recording with it.
