The Police played a show for the students of Hatfield Polytechnics.
Before Message In A Bottle Sting said: "This next tune is the first time it's been played in public. This is a sort of baptism. Interesting. This is called I hope that someone gets my Message In A Bottle."
Before the second encore Sting said: "Thanks Hatfield. Really, it has been good for us."
"On the guitar, Andy Summers. On the drums, Stewart Copeland. This is Sting, good night Hatfield from The Police."
The complete show was recorded by the BBC-Television. This show was broadcasted on BBC2 "Rock Goes to College" on 06-04-1979 (11.40pm). It was rebroadcasted numerous times since then.
