Recording information

There's a recording of this concert. It ends with Can't Stand Losing You (cut at the end).


There were 18.000 people in the audience.

There's a ticket for the concert at the Capital Centre for Saturday, August 20. It seems that the Philadelphia concert was arranged at a later point, so The Police played at the Capital Centre today and on 1983-08-22.

These concerts are also listed as Largo, MD or Washington, DC... The venue was actually in Largo, Landover, Maryland - which is a suburb of Washington, DC. Yet Largo is only a small part of the town Landover.

The Police stayed at their mansion on Long Island.
