I just saw the police. I have very few words, only that this was a dream come true, to finally see a band I thought I would never get the chance to see. A band that has heavily influenced my music writing and my guitar playing (Andy Summers is brilliant). It was not only a dream come true, but is now the best live performance I’ve ever seen.
Sting is still my favorite vocalist, and managed to go for two hours with very little difference between when he started (awesome) and when he finished (still awesome). Andy Summers, as previously mentioned, had fantastic tone, was dead on with the riffs and solos, and dead on with the new riffs and arrangments they’ve come up with. Stuart Copeland has always been one of my favorite drummers. His work tonight was beyond the recordings. He was so much fun to watch, and whether playing drums or hopping over to his percussion set up, he was everything and more than their catalogue shows.
Anyway, I’ll stop the gushing now and go to bed, with a little tune running in my ears. De do do do, de da da da, is all I want to say to you.
Well, I guess I said a little more than that.
