This concert was added to the tour as ticket demand was higher than expected. Originally THE CURE were supposed to play here today...

The Police shot their videos for Message In A Bottle and Can't Stand Losing You at this venue and on this day.

The videos reveal that Sting played with the fretless 1979 Ibanez Musician bass; Stewart's drum set included 6 Octobans - he probably received those on 1979-06-15 in Sheffield.

The concert was reviewed in NME (June 23, 1979) and Melody Maker / Record Mirror (June 30, 1979).
