i'm trying to remain calm...

I won't mention any names...but someone just announced another show in my area for April! Hell yes I am going again! He'll be here in Orange County for only the second time ever. Save your money to fly out here if you want to see him...I'm getting an extra ticket to give away to some lucky person :)

Congrats! You must be so excited. I know that if The Police came back here again in a couple of months, I'd go again, too! They aren't quite my obsession as he is yours ... but still fantastic.

You have a one track mind Layla. And it has caused you to forget Neil Young's birthday! :P Oh well, I suppose I can't really blame you. Bruce is great.

And happy birthday Neil. Long may you run.

(I think I'm a day or so late myself actually. I'm in Australia. That's my excuse!).

There will be a day when it won't happen, so go see him as much as you like. I'm in agreement with David that if the Police came around again, I'd pony up the house payment and do it again. Their concert was incredible.

I saw the Police at the Virgin Fest in Baltimore. They were better than I expected, but I was happy that I didn't pay for the tickets.

Bob, you saw them the day before I did, so I don't think there couldn't have been much a variance in quality. I was only a few years old when they were popular, so it was a great thing for me to be able to see them. There's not many bands that I like that play anymore, so boo-hoo for me.

The Police were my favorite band when I was about 12 and then they broke-up, so I never got to see them either. The problem I have with them is really related to Sting being an adult artist (and an unbelievably self-important hypocrite). I just didn't think he could pull it off. I actually wrote a review of the whole Virgin Fest. I had no intention of actually seeing the Police (I was gonna watch Modest Mouse instead), but that's who I wrote the most about. I think my feelings were best summed up in this: I sang along a lot, but I never clapped. I saw TV on the Radio just before the Police (missed "Message in a Bottle" as a result) and it was easier for me to watch the past after witnessing the future.

I slip into self-induced amnesia with Sting's post-Police career. To think that the only ill-will at the time of their breakup was attributed to his coke-filled fantasies of individual grandeur only makes it more painful when you consider that Andy and Stew were (and still are) top musicians and were still very willing to continue playing as The Police. Still, who knows what kind of megalomaniacal album they would have put after Synchronicity, which was obviously Sting putting on the strangehold.
