Recording information

There's a recording of this concert.


This concert was sold out - there were 14.585 people in the audience - which is strange as the Civic Theatre only has a capacity of about 3.000.

People without tickets climbed into the venue through the roof. A vent duct had been disassembled. An unknow number of people then entered an elevator shaft and opened the elevator's trap door. The elevator faced an administrative area which led directly to the concert hall itself.

The next date of The Police's US tour had to be cancelled - it would have been in Las Vegas on 1980-11-06.

People also remember seeing this concert at the Golden Hall - which is next to the Civic Theatre.
