also, I love the one squeak from the sax and the the two out of tune notes in the beginning.

the fact that they left that in is pure genius.

Which show or shows on the Synchronicity tour did you see?

Ok, these were both more than 20 years ago, keep that in mind; my memories may have been a bit compromised (and I went to tons of concerts).

The first time was at either the Forum or the Sports Arena in LA, and it was on the Zenyatta tour I think because Sting wore a Beat t-shirt in the Don't Stand video and I wore my Beat t-shirt to the concert. I remember thinking at the time how good the concert was because of how good they were playing.


The second time was at Hollywood Park (in LA) of all places, an outdoor racetrack. It was before U2 played the Memorial Coluseum (I can't spell that word, so I've given up on it) and I swore off outdoor shows. I should have listened earlier. Video screens at concerts were new, and the band seemed more fascinated with the video screens than making music. They took a break in the middle of the show to go backstage and perform antics that were broadcast on the screen. I can't remember what tour is was. I didn't keep track of things like that back then. A new album came out, I went to see the concert.
The Hollywood Park show was in the first week of September of 1983 on the Synchronicity Tour. I can find the exact date later. It appears you skipped the Ghost in the Machine Tour which played the Forum 3 nights in a row in 1982. The Sports Arena show on Zenyatta was one of the last USA shows for the Zenyatta tour and took place in January 1981.

The police are freaking amazing!!!
Some of my fav's are: Walking on the moon, King of Pain, Spirits in the material world, Don't stand so close to me (...just to name a few)

They are so original.

Thank you!

It seems unlikely that I wouldn't have seen them on the Ghost tour. Unlikely, but quite possible.

I wish I'd seen The Police live. At least I've seen Sting.

STING2, are you in the US?

If you are, you may be able to benefit from my housecleaning.

Contact a mod, have the mod contact me, and I'll either email you or you can email me. I have something for you.

Oh, yeah, another band I love that broke up before I got a chance to see them!

A lot of bands talk a lot of b.s. about how unique they are, but with the Police it was really true. There was no one quite like them before and no one quite like them since.

I just found evidence of my attendance at a Ghost tour show. So, I either saw them three times (which I doubt, seeing as I can only picture two shows in my head) or what I thought was Zenyatta was indeed Ghost.

Either way STING2, check your email.

Well, Sting wore the Beat shirt on the Zenyatta Tour, not the Ghost Tour from what I have seen, but perhaps he wore it that night. I presume you have the ticket stub for the Ghost tour, what does it say?
