Recording information

There's a recording of this concert.


This was The Police's second concert for the German TV show Rockpalast (the other was in Hamburg on 1980-01-11).

Today was one of Rockpalast's special events - that's when it was more like a festival they organized themselves instead of "just" filming bands at their own concerts.

So Graham Parker & The Rumour opened this show, The Police came second and Jack Bruce finished the show.

The show was broadcast on German TV and radio.

The Police would play at the same venue again on 1981-10-02.

The show was also broadcast live on BBC2 TV in the UK.
