The Police - Concert information

[Updated: August 12, 2001]

27-03-1979 / Syracuse, NY / Uncle Sam's / USA
Support act: The Flash Cubes, The The.
Attendance: 400; sellout.
Tickets for this show at a disco sold for $5. Although the show sold out (based on the success of Roxanne), most of the crowd still had no idea who The Police were, so they didn't recognize the band as they milled about, playing pinball and drinking Heinekens.
During the show there was a huge fight in the crowd in front of the stage and the cops were called to break it up. Bottles were thrown at Sting, Sting spit into the crowd. Roxanne was played twice.

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.
