Recording information

There's a recording of this concert. And a very bad (partial) video recording.

Shadows In The Rain and When The World Is Running Down You Make The Best Of What's Still Around are not featured on any recording or in any review of this concert.


This concert was originally planned to take place on 1980-11-25. But The Police preferred to shoot their video for De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da on that day.

Keyboarder Jean Roussel attended today's concert which took place in front of 4.200 people.

In the days before this concert he and Sting worked at Le Studio in Quebec to record the demo for Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic. Nick Blagona was the engineer for this demo.

The Police tried to re-record the song later that year in Montserrat, but it turned out that the demo was quite perfect. So Stewart Copeland and Andy Summers played their instruments along to that original demo.
