In later years, other Amnesty benefit shows also bore the Secret Policeman's title. They are informally referred to as The Secret Policeman's Balls. The Secret Policeman's Ball took place over four consecutive nights in London on 27–30 June 1979

In 1987, The Secret Policeman's Third Ball was presented to anxious UK fans. This explains why most of the US fans aren't aware of this great series of music. I think the original new wave and punk fans know how special the Balls are since they owned the original albums. The Third Ball included: Lou Ree, Kate Bush, Duran Duran, Peter Gabriel, Mark Knopfler, Jackson Browne, David Gilmour and Joan Armatrading. The songs are all moving and powerful piece carefully selected to evoke compassion for others or to painfully illustrate the need for improvement, worldwide
