The Police did a soundcheck at the Liberty Bell Park in Philadelphia in the afternoon and travelled to New York City by bus (Enterprise 1).

Sting was best man at Miles Copeland's wedding around 7:30 pm. Among the guests were Stewart Copeland, Andy Summers, Ian Copeland and all their wifes, too. Jools Holland played the wedding march on a grand piano. After the ceremony drinks and photos were taken in the outside patio. In the dining room speeches were held. After The Drifters played a short set the members of The Police took their instruments and played some Elvis Presley songs together with members of the Go-Go's and Oingo Boingo.

Before returning to their hotels Sting and Stewart Copeland visited WNEW radio to make an announcement for next day's concert in Philadelphia.
