The Police -The Synchronicity Tour
Omni Coliseum – Atlanta, Gerogia
November 2nd & 3rd 1983
The Synchronicity Tour was a 1983–1984 concert tour by The Police to promote their fifth album, Synchronicity. It kicked off on July 23, 1983 in Chicago and was concluded on February 4, 1984 in Melbourne. It touched three continents for a total of 105 shows.
During the early dates in the first North American leg, the band resided at a mansion in Bridgehampton, New York and were flown to the concerts. This was the band’s final tour as a working unit and one of the highest-grossing tours of the 1980s.
According to Sting, the band’s performance at Shea Stadium constituted the peak of their career. “I realized that you can’t get better than this, you can’t climb a mountain higher than this. This is Everest. I made the decision on stage that ok, this is it, this is where this thing stops, right now.”
The November 2 and 3 shows in Atlanta were filmed and recorded for a live album and a video release. Synchronicity Concert was originally issued in VHS format in 1984. Later released in DVD format in 2005.
