The Police - Concert information

[Updated: September 18, 2001]

11-09-1983 / Fresno, CA / Ratcliffe Stadium / USA
Support act: Thompson Twins, Oingo Boingo, The Fixx.
Attendance: ?; sellout.
This show was scheduled for 03-09-1983 (see ticket!), but rescheduled to 11-09-1983. Being the Central Valley of California in September, it was incredibly hot.
Oingo boingo was nearly booed off the stage as everyone started throwing hundreds of empty plastic cups up onto the stage. The lead singer stopped the song and screamed, "For everyone enjoying our music, Thank you. For everyone else...FUCK OFF!".
During the show Sting kept asking for glasses of water.
