28-06-1997 / Turku / "Ruisrock Festival" / FINLAND
• Attendance: 25,000.
Sting headlined on the first day of this two day festival, which took place on the Ruissalo island 6 km from the centre of Turku on the west coast of Finland. The site was a combination of beach and park. The event became a big economical failure for the arrangers, because the income of beer sales "disappeared".
