The concert was AWESOME!!
I still can not believe I was there, that I saw them, and that I heard them live....I have managed to see the #2 group of my list of bands I never got to see!
I had chill bumps when the lights went down and being the total dork that I am...I cried when they came on stage and started playing. It was a very emotional concert for me...
I suppose it's because I had always thought I had missed my opportunity. I would never get to see The Police in concert. The concert was a lifetime wish come true. I know that sounds so goofy...but it's the truth. When I got my first CD player for Christmas way back when, Synchronicity was one of the three CD's I got with it.
The concert reviews had all been sort of negative up til now. They all complained that the songs were too slow, the guys weren't playing together, they didn't seem to be enjoying themselves...
Not this time: The Cleveland show has gotten rave reviews. Everyone who had been to previous concerts said the Cleveland show was the best so far. I know I thought it rocked!! It was also Stewart Copeland's birthday. Everyone in the crowd seemed to be on their feet the whole time, the guys played pretty tight, only a couple of screw ups and I think once or twice they were messing with each other. Stewart is awesome on the percussion, if you get a chance to go to one of the concerts you have to keep your eye on him.
I stood up when the lights went down and never sat back down til we got in the cab to go back to the airport. So depressing that it was over.....
