Recording information

There's a recording of this concert.


The venue name is usually listed as Winnipeg Coliseum, but no venue with such name exists or existed.

There were 16.300 people in the audience.

The Thompson Twins took the stage approx. 8 pm. After their set and a brief stage change, The Police took the stage around 10 pm.

About an hour after the show Stewart Copeland and Andy Summers left in a smaller black stretch limo. Their car pulled right up to the door and they soon drove away; no interaction with fans. Sting's car was a much larger silver limo and parked about 50 meters away from the building. He signed no autographs but was pleasant enough on his departure and fans were able to have a good look.

The Police stayed at the Fort Garry Hotel.

This is a rumoured story - there's no other proof than a post in an internet forum:

"After the soundcheck in Winnipeg Sting and Stewart Copeland went for a walk to cool off. While Stewart got lost Sting had a good time in a bookstore and arranged for another day off in Winnipeg."
