The Police - Concert information

[Updated: August 12, 2001]


26-02-1980 / Hong Kong / Today's World Disco / UK
The Police were crammed on a very small stage. They were just standing a few inches higher than the people in the audience.
A two-minute segment in which The Police received their British Pop Awards (for Best British Group and Best Album) was televised live to the BBC in London.
The Police were to do a split set of 45 minutes each, the first to coincide with the satellite link-up. Anne Nightingale should leap on the stage as they played Walking On The Moon. A Chinese floor manager was to tap her on the back as a cue when he got word from London. The Police played Walking On The Moon (Sting made it local and sang Walking in Kowloon). The band played on and on, but there came no signal from London. Eventually they exhausted all possible variations and came off stage. Later the award was handed over in the dressingroom.



I believe the information on this page is pretty accurate, but please contact me when you found any errors or when you have any additional information about this show.
Also let me know when you have any kind of memorabilia (concert tickets, flyers. concert posters, photos and reviews).
Have you ever attended a concert of The Police, Sting, Andy Summers or Stewart Copeland? Please send me the information and thereby help to enlarge the Concert Achive.
