Remembering The Police And Their First Tour Of America [Video]
October 20,1978, The Police made their debut in the United States at the famous C.B.G.B.S, New York City. After that gig in The Big Apple the band would eventually make it to Detroit. Sting says the first time they performed in the Motor City it was at Bookie’s night club where they entertained three people and one was the booking agent.
I remember seeing them the following year at Masonic Temple in front of a sold out show and then meeting them at the Book Cadillac Hotel after the show. The Police where definitely a hot band at the time and their music still sounds cool.
