The Police - Concert information

[Updated: August 12, 2001]

28-03-1980 / Cairo / American University / EGYPT
Attendance: 1,100; sellout.
To reduce the cost the equipment was sent as accompanied baggage. When arriving in Cairo the customs were closed due to the religious Friday. The authorities finally had to give permission to get the equipment through the customs the same day. There was no time left for a soundcheck and the show started at 9.30pm instead of the scheduled 8.00pm.
During the show Sting got in trouble with a police agent.

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.
