IMHO the best filmed live concert ever. The band are at their absolute peak of performance and popularity. There can rarely have been a better front man than the then-youthful Sting and Stewart Copeland is one amazing drummer. Andy Summers was/is a superb musician and his contribution was always, I feel, underrated. The sound they created was incredible given they were a three-piece unit. Godley & Creme did a wonderful job of capturing the excitement of the live performance and the audience reaction. I find it as exciting now 21(!!!) years after the event as I did at the time. A great legacy to leave as they broke up at their peak. It shows all the modern manufactured bands how to do it. Remember you have to be able to actually master and PLAY your instruments!! Oh and you also need talent. The Police had all that in spades.
