Yes! I was one of the 10,000 people that were lucky enough to attend this concert. This is going to be their last EVER! performance once they are done with this tour.
By the way – this post is late too. The concert actually took place on 4 February 2008. Same day as my favourite sister’s birthday.
This 3 person band has been around for more than 30 years! Even though they were not in action for a couple of years in between. Well, between the 3 of them, they must be more than a century old.
They are brilliant performers! Can you imagine, Sting, the lead vocalist/bassist could sing for almost 2 hours without tiring? The guitarist, when his hands were shown close up, had liver spots, the skin on his hands so thin and transparent his veins were showing and popping out – the hands of a very old person – and yet! He played his guitar and produced VERY GOOD music! He could dance at the same time too!!! This is so impressive!
The drummer – WOW! moves with the speed of lightning! You have to try picturing, a very old wrinkled man with a head full of gray hairs drumming away with such speed and stamina and skill! Amazing! And he did so for 2 hours! He sure has got the MOVES!
I am feeling faint and in a bewildered state from my memory of such a remarkable performance!
