If you're quick, you realize that those are Police songs. I like to think I'm clever, so read on for the reasoning behind my title and subtitle.
Police + Wrigley Field review...
I think the venue was pretty cool...and our seats...you can't really beat our seats (first row, on the field but a bit to the left of the stage. Sting was basically right in front of us...thanks Pooj for the amazing seats). And the band was pretty tight for being a bunch of old guys. Here's some random observations:
- They were far jammier than I expected, and personally I don't think it enhanced my experience. But maybe super-fans really like that?
- Sting looks great for his age, but dressed like a weird Scottish tantric guy. Tight pants made his feet look huge as well. And he clapped like a weirdo - spread all your fingers as wide as they can go on both hands and clap. Looks funny, right?
- Sting's bass...think he's been playing the same one since the seventies...it was battered and scratched. He must love that thing...
- Lot of songs that I know.....lots that I didn't. But overall, enjoyable.
