Recording information

A few songs from the Hammersmith Odeon concert were featured on the Outlandos To Synchronicities: A History Of The Police Live! VHS release.

An audio recording of the Hammersmith Palais concert surfaced in late 2019.


The Police played two shows in one night. They went from the Hammersmith Odeon to the nearby Hammersmith Palais in an army vehicle. The streets were cluttered with fans and policemen.

The first show began at 6.00pm, the second at 10.00pm or later.

- Stewart: "One place I'm glad we are playing is the Hammersmith Palais. That's a really neat venue".
