Great NZ Concerts - The Police

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 2:19 pm on 22 December 2015

On February 29 1984 the British rock band The Police came to Westerns Springs in what was described by one of the critics as one of the most spectacular - and loudest - performances ever seen at the Western Springs Stadium. As part of their Synchronicity Tour, the band played all their hits, but it wasn't the music that was the most memorable. Dozens of people were injured, more than 60 were arrested before the show even started and a car was overturned and set alight after the driver drove through the crowd outside the gates.
