The Police - Concert information

[Updated: March 4, 2003]

01-12-1978 / Bath / University / UK
Support act for: Alberto Y Lost Trios Paranoias.
Andy: "In England we hadn't really played outside London and we were a bit unsure of ourselves. We played the first night at Bath University and about 1,000 kids turned up. We went on first and the audience sounded as if they'd all come to see us. We were just completely blown away. All these kids were there because of Roxanne and Can't Stand Losing You. The records had obviously made a great impact even if they hadn't hit the carts. We did a dozen or so dates around England and the reaction was the same everywhere; it was just so emphatic. It was embarrassing in a way because the Albertos had to play second fiddle to us even though they were headlining." (L'Historia Bandido; p.60).
