The Police - Concert information

[Updated: August 12, 2001]

24-11-1980 / Toronto, Ont. / Massey Hall / CANADA
Setlist same as: 03-11-1980.
Attendance: 2,800; sellout.
Although The Police could have played at the Maple Leaf Gardens, they chose to play at the intimate Massey Hall. Stewart admitted this decision came from loyalty to promoters Gary Topp and Gary Cormier of The Edge, who helped the band on its way, but didn't have access to the Gardens.
"It's cold. Could you get me a drink, Danny? I'm thirsty. And turn the fan off. This is called Shadows In The Rain".
"This is a song about the future. What future? You keep clapping. When The World Is Running Down".
During Message In A Bottle: "Come on, sing with me. If you are dying, don't bother".
A mobile studio (with two 24-channel consoles) was imported from Montreal to record the show.
