Universal Music are pleased to announce the Tuesday, November 8th, 2005 DVD premiere U.S. release of The Police - Synchronicity Concert - the stunning live-in-concert extravaganza filmed during their Atlanta leg of their 'Synchronicity' World Tour in November 1983. Exclusive to this DVD are the 4 previously unseen multi angle tracks - 'Synchronicity II', 'Roxanne', 'Invisible Sun' and 'Don't Stand So Close To Me'. As an additional treat, the DVD also includes the original concert trailer and a rare interview with the band from their final concert on their 'Synchronicity' World Tour (and their last ever Police concert) in Melbourne, Australia 1984.
Twenty-two years later, this spectacular concert has never sounded better. For the very first time on DVD, the audio has been remixed in 5.1 Surround Sound, and includes three different audio soundtracks including dts, Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound, and 2.0 Dolby Digital Stereo.
Originally directed and edited by Godley & Crème, this energetic and power-packed live concert brilliantly captures the Police at the height of their success, when 'Synchronicity' ruled airwaves and the trio were one of the biggest bands in the world.
The songs performed during the concert include their most memorable hit singles including 'So Lonely', 'Roxanne', 'Message in a Bottle', 'De Do Do Do De Da Da Da', and 'Every Breath You Take', plus several songs taken from the 'Synchronicity' album including 'King Of Pain', 'Wrapped Around Your Finger', 'Walking In Your Footsteps', 'Tea in the Sahara' and 'O My God'.

'Synchronicity': the album - by Greg Prato
Although 'Synchronicity' would be the Police's most commercially successful, and lead to a sold-out tour (including New York's Shea Stadium), it would turn out to be the trio's fifth and final studio album and world tour. One of 1983's biggest singles, the haunting 'Every Breath You Take' is an obvious highlight, as well as other hits -- the cacophonous rocker 'Synchronicity II', plus the far more temperate 'Wrapped Around Your Finger' and 'King of Pain'. Also included are the oft-overlooked tracks 'O My God',' 'Synchronicity I' (used as a concert opener on the ensuing tour), 'Tea in the Sahara', 'Murder by Numbers', and the Stewart Copeland original 'Miss Gradenko'. Few other albums from 1983 merged tasteful pop, sophistication, and expert songwriting as well as 'Synchronicity' did, resulting in yet another all-time classic.
