The Police - Concert information

[Updated: March 28, 2011]

22-03-1982 / Austin, TX / Frank Erwin Center / USA
Setlist same as: 10-01-1982.
Before Spirits In The Material World: "It's nice to be in the state capital".
"The thing is this, when we first came to America in 1978, nobody knew the fuck we were. I mean nobody," Sting stated during Can't Stand Losing You, "There was a record called Roxanne, which came out in England. Nobody gave a fuck about it. Nobody played it. By accident it ended up in a radiostation in Austin, Texas. I'm not bullshiting, this is true. They played it on the radiostation and people phoned up and said they liked it. The radiostation next door picked it up and the town next to that picked it up. And we found ourselves with a hit. This all happened in Austin, Texas. In a sense, this isn't a normal gig. It's like, um, it's kind of like Destiny. We'd all like to say thank you to Austin".
