Squeeze at the Bowl © Roger Button
A crowd of 25,000 braved this one ,the first of a series of dates to promote the Police's new album and the first major rock event held at the bowl .The concert in 1979 had featured Reggae acts . In 1980 it had rained buckets in the days before the show and as a consquence the bowl was a mudpit. The police's set was bootlegged , not known if the other acts were recorded .
Squeeze at the Bowl , note Reading Rock symbol at far right, these concerts were promoted by the same folks who ran the Reading Festival
