Cherry Vanilla was supposed to perform on the "European" tour (Holland + Paris) in March 1977. But as she was in hospital at that time The Police went without her, supporting Wayne County instead.

For the concert at the Roundhouse on 1977-04-17 the Cherry Vanilla band (incl. Sting and Stewart Copeland) supported The Stranglers and The Jam. The Police did not play here.
