The Police Please!

Jason and I went to the Police concert last night at Usana Amphitheater with Andrew and Simone. All I can say is wow!

The Stage

We had absolutely fantastic seats. We were only about ten rows from the front. These seats were well worth the $200 price tag.

Sting, Andy, and Stewart were amazing! Listening to them you never would have guessed that they had just recently reunited after a 25 year hiatus.

I am too young to have been a fan of the Police when they were in their heyday. I was introduced to them when I was in high school, a decade after they broke up. I had been a fanatical Sting enthusiast for years and once I learned of the Police their music quickly became a favorite of mine as well.

Sting!

Thankfully the audience at this concert was not super tame and lame. Most of the people around us never took their seats-so I didn’t either. I sung, clapped, screamed, and bounced around the whole night. I knew every word to every song without any thought. Listening to the Police was like listening to the soundtrack to my life-so familiar was every chord and word.

Although Sting is now 56, he still looks like he is in much better shape than me. That man has aged extremely well! The other members of the Police didn’t look like they had fared as well over the last twenty five years but Stewart Copeland still had it going on, banging away on the drums!

Wow! If they ever tour again, I will definitely be there.
