Recording information

This was broadcast on Dutch radio, so there's a recording out there - see "External links" section.


Earlier today The Police flew from Hamburg to Amsterdam and landed at Schiphol airport at 12:50pm, where they did a quick photo session for Hitkrant magazine.

This concert was originally scheduled to take place on 1979-06-23. It was rescheduled because The Police also played the Loreley festival.

The Police played here before on 1977-03-25 with Wayne County & The Electric Chairs.

Early German tour schedules list a concert in Wiesbaden at the Wartburg for this day, although in Stewart's diary the Wiesbaden gig is noted on 1979-06-21... This was rescheduled to 1979-09-04.
