There's a recording of this concert.
Jol Dantzig delivered a new Hamer guitar (later named "The Prototype" - serial number 02391) to Andy Summers backstage at Madison Square Garden and Andy used it during the concert. These three photos were all taken by Jol Dantzig at Madison Square Garden and show Sting and Andy with Hamer guitars.
There were about 20.000 people in the audience at Madison Square Garden. Someone threw a bottle into Stewart Copeland's bass drum during De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da. While Jeff Seitz fixed the problem Sting sang The Yellow Rose Of Texas to entertain the audience.
Today A&M promoted the band's efforts with a two page ad in Billboard magazine.
