The Police headlined in New York City at a previously unused ballroom in the Hotel Diplomat (located at: 108 West 43rd Street). The first thousand tickets for the first show sold so fast that two other days in this venue were added (on 28-09-1979 and 29-09-1979).
The afternoon before the start of their new American tour The Police gave a press conference at A&M's office in Manhattan. In total they played forty-seven dates (including some unusual venues) across the States until 01-12-1979.
