The Police - Concert information

[Updated: August 12, 2001]

29-07-1981 / Carácas / VENEZUELA
On 28-07-1981 The Police and the crew flew from Montserrat to Carácas in an old DC-3. Above the Caribbean a hurricane opened the emergency door, which was twisted on top of the plane. Andy was almost blown out by the wind. Larry tried to draw the door back, but couldn't close it. The door was tied to the chairs.
The two shows in Venezuela were performed in front of 15,000 people and were a replacement for the two shows, which were cancelled in December 1980.

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.
