The Police at Wembley Arena
Richard Cook, NME, 2 January 1982
THE LAST night of a residency can be many things: a blow-out, a piss-up, a tired release, a last lunge for the heights. I don't know about the other days; but The Police's final show in the Wembley Arena a great barn of a place hardly conducive to niceties like 'communication' and 'warmth' panhandled the obvious and still managed exhilaration in heavy doses.
