Recording information

This section needs more information. Please note if an official or unofficial recording, or recording(s), is known to exist of this performance.


The concert was sold out - there were 2.150 people in the audience.

After finishing a "Tube" TV show Sting wanted to play the 2nd Newcastle concert. But a power failure caused by an explosion in a backstage sub-station and fuse-box forced Sting to change plans. He started to play a few acoustic numbers, but then decided to re-schedule the whole concert to 1986-02-03.

According to the tour itinerary no hotels were booked for the band in Tynemouth tonight, so the band probably travelled to Edinburgh after the concert where they were staying at Dalhousie Castle.
