"I told the band that this is my hometown". After the introduction of the band Sting continued: "This song is called After Today Consider Me Gone. Which is a lie".
"This next song was written when I was in a band in Newcastle, called Last Exit. We used to play the Gosforth Hotel in Gosforth on Wednesday night and this song is called I Burn For You".
Before Russians: "I've got some good news tonight. I've got a phone call from L.A., Los Angeles sorry, and they saidthat The Dream Of The Blue Turtles is nominted for six Grammy Awards. The only reason I'm telling you this, is because I want to read it in the [Evening] Chronicle tomorrow". Some girls were shouting: "Take your jacket off". Sting answered: "What? No. I'll do this" and started to sing Russians.
During his stay in Newcastle Sting donated 10,000 to manager Tim Archer of the Buddle Arts Centre for a PA system.
