Saw 'em last October...I'm sure there's going to be gripes that they were in it for the money, but I had a BLAST (plus my ticket was free!). All I needed was a bi-level and some OP shorts and I would have been in 7th grade again! If you want to read a cool book, check out Andy Summer's "One Train Later".

They were the worst show Bonnaroo has ever had. total snooze fest. But I did get quite a laugh when andy summers ripped off Stings shirt. Those fellas are so snuggly.

I do have to say there in it for the money as I much as I love Police tunes. When I lived on Maui, I had a lot of friends fly over to Oahu for what was billed as the last show on their reunion tour. That was in Februray. Soon after Rolling Stone reported it was one of the biggest selling tours. The fact that they're still playing these reunion shows and the members have been clear that they still don't get along tells you one thing.

Not a Police fan at all, but took the wife to Buffalo show. They were quite good, and the world beat infusion into their old songs was interesting. I have to say the Police were better than the last 3 Phil and Friends yawners I've endured.

Hopefully soon, Oysterhead was Awesome and needs to make a triumphant return. As for Stew dissing each his own, mabye its just not his bag, man.

I got to see this show (Philly) as a make-up from them cancelling it last fall, plus I went with some freinds to see the New Jersey show last weekend; The Philly show was definetly better since it was in your face and the huge screens that they had totally lit the place up! We were moved from our nosebleed ticket seats to one of the sections on the floor, which was awesome (don't ask me how that worked!), and I thought the show was rocking- Elvis is a god as usual of course. The New Jersey show (PNC Center) was more like Policestock or something- tons of people in one of those huge outdoor venues and I pretty much got drunk and jammed despite having seen the same show a few nights before! Maybe they were only in it for the money, but I am glad I went to see this when I had the chance.

shonuff, yes I remember very well- I've yet to forgive Kaycemen (as if he really gives a crap what I think)for not challenging Copeland's lame little media games- even if his amazingly stupid comment was tongue in cheek.

And sunnbear, yeah, Elvis is super cool, although I personally think he went for a milk run here teaming up with lessor talents but a bigger draw. Money talks, I suppose. Familiar with his wife? The lovely and talented Diana Krall.

What is Sting wearing, it looks like he should be in the old Sproket skit with Mike Myers from SNL
