He also joined the all star band The Secret Police at the end of each concert to perform I Shall Be Released.
The shows were filmed by Julian Temple. The movie The Secret Policeman's Other Ball was released in 1982.
The Secret Policeman's Other Ball was the fourth of Amnesty International's fund-raising comedy galas (which were started in 1976 by John Cleese).
Sting was approached by producer Martin Lewis and agreed to perform on all four scheduled shows.
The audience was aware that there would be musical guests at this comedy gala, but the organizers did not announce which musicians would be appearing.
When Sting was about to perform he was positioned in the middle of the empty stage. He would begin to sing Roxanne and just then he would be hit by a spotlight. The effect on the audience was amazing.
Sting also watched Top Of The Pops on TV that day (probably recorded on VHS).
