    Funny.. my wife was at that concert in Dallas.

    We're going together at the end of July in Boston at Fenway Park.

    Double congrats to you Shane.
    Frankly tho, I think that since you have already been, someone else should be allowed to attend with your wife :wink:

    I agree, Jack. :) Although I think that means you just asked Shane out to a concert. :D

    OK, I was far too tired to write anything last night. I would love to hear what your wife thought of the show, Shane.

    The opening act was Fiction Plane, a.k.a. the Son of Sting. At first it was not apparent, then he lets out a high wail like his father and it was fairly obvious from then on out. Their CD was only $10 so I picked it up--not bad.

    After a 30-minute set change, The Police took the stage with Message in a Bottle. They then rocked through a 1:45 set that included all of their hits, and a couple of more obscure tracks--I am sure I've heard them, but could not name them as I only got the first couple of albums this year.

    The first wow moment for me was Wrapped Around Your Finger. Stripped of the album's synthesizers, the mood was set entirely with the solid bass work of Sting, the moody guitar of Andy Summers, and the large percussion sets of Stewart Copeland.

    I may be wrong about this, but it looked like the guitars were not changed during the entire show, unless Andy Summers has multiple red strats. The did not really have time to tune between the encores, although I guess it's possible. Sting used an old, beat-up bass--never went to anything esoteric like a upright, 5-string, or stick.

    It was tight, and well-honed. Stewart Copeland's rant from the first shows was no longer a concern.

    I shouted myself silly on Roxanne. The voice is still a little ragged after that.

    Wow. The Synchronicty tour was the one show I regretted missing in my youth. I can put that regret behind me!

    Well like me since I didn't go to the Dallas concert. :)

    Wife loved the show. She said it was like a big jam session for 2 hrs +. Very up close and personal.

    She liked Fiction Plane. Said it was ok but little variety between the songs.

    Supposedly Maroon 5 is the first band out in Boston. We shall see. An outdoor show should be a different experience for her.
