So finally a brief review I wrote:
This show was part of the Gateshead Festival, held on 31 July 1982 in England. Other acts were: Lords Of The New Church, Gang Of Four, The Beat, U2. Bono joins Police at the end of Invisible Sun, but he can only be heard. The Police show was videotaped and later broadcasted on UK TV. It was later released on laserdisc.

The performance is good, the perform song of the then new album Ghost In The Machine and the old classics as well. The new songs set a darker tone. They are supported by some additional musicians, which was meant to add some colour to the music. It is an interesting idea but in my opinion th Police music is a lot better without trumpets. The only annoying thing for me was the frequent use of synthesizer (or guitar pedal), which can be heard at the beginning of Message In The Bottle.

Video and audio: this concert was originally recorded onto videotape by a TV crew. The transfer was professionally done, thanks to Presence. The results looks as good as it can. Some faults of the origional source material can be spotted but it does not distract the viewer. The circulating bootleg DVD5-s are made from the laserdisc edition, so this version is a huge uppgrade quality wise.The audio is LPCM and sounds clean.

All in all, a good concert and a great concert in excellent quality. Well worth downloading.
(P.S: I cant't wait to review the Beatles in Japan white suit concert. :D )
