Recording information

This section needs more information. Please note if an official or unofficial recording, or recording(s), is known to exists of this performance.


After yesterday's concert The Police sleep at a hotel in Groningen. Stewart Copeland walks around the city before the soundcheck - which doesn't happen as the PA doesn't arrive in time...

"Dixie Chicken" play first, then The Police.

In this very short 1977 show Stewart's drumkit fell apart (according to Sting in his autobiography Broken Music). A review mentions that about 90 people attended the concert. Stewart played with his Police cap and Henry with his sunglasses on.

Huize Maas is a small venue in the centre of the city of Groningen, the Netherlands. Nowadays it hosts private and school parties.
