Why did they only announce 2 shows in the middle of the 2nd US tour leg?

I have a friend who is part of the 10 game plan for the Red Sox at Fenway Park. Now that they have finished going through all the regular season ticket holders, people who are part of the 10 game plan are being emailed asking whether they are interested in tickets. Once they go through this group, I'm sure we'll see some drops for the Fenway shows.

So even though the shows are considered to be sold out, technically, that is not the case, which was what Hewson and I were talking about way back when.

The group is now in GM. FP is rehearsing there as well.

Is there a rule about posting 4 times in a row?

Is Fiction Plane the opening band? I haven't been keeping up with this thread and am too lazy to go and look back.

Good thing we'll probably be showing up there late.

I saw them back a few years ago and they were ok, nothing really special.

3 minutes of performance and a glace at the outdoor stage. Very "unofficial".

There's 4 different videoclips from the outdoor rehearsal on youtube.

I heard some of the GM rehearsals tonight. Sting's singing sounds absolutely fabulous - he was hitting notes I thought he wouldn't even dare try on this tour, let alone a rehearsal. Everything sounded very casual and comfortable. One guard told me they were playing off and on from mid-afternoon untilearly evening. Sorry, can't offer any song titles.

I think they may take saturday off, with a slight possibility of a cameo at the local Fiction Plane Club show. Then on sunday it's full steam ahead with the dress rehearsal fan-only show. Tour openers are Monday and Wednesday.

I did get a small idea as to the light show. Lots of white light to bathe the audience. There's also a rotating Red/Blue/Yellow(think synchro album cover) that will be covering the audience. There are screens for the indoor show.

I also got to see the tour program that an tour employee was showing people outside the building. Looked nice, lots of vintage photos and about 20% ads!!!! Mostly ads for Police fanclub, stu's drumsticks and Sting 'n Trudi's swingers club.

To the 3 people actually reading this thread, hello!!!
