Anybody here know for a fact where the $90 seats are?

And no guesses please.
Can only speak for MSG - saw that $94 seats were at the far end of the 100s level, all of the 300s in front of stage (not sure about the far end though, those may be lower) and all the 200s in front of stage except for the 4 sections closest to the stage on each side (side stage secs were also $94). 207-210 and 220-223 were $254. Yes, the top end at MSG is $254 not $225. I have a Section 206 Row C for the Friday Aug. 3 show that is $94.

January 31st 2007 "24hrs"(free Vancouver newspaper)

The famous gates at Lion's Gate Studios in the North Vancouver have been a busy gathering place ever since it was learned The Police were on the other side rehearsing for the reunion tour. In addition to papparazzi, who have been camping out hoping for photos, fans report hearing the band practicing some famous tunes including "Walking on the Moon" and "Message in a Bottle". Sting, Andy Summers and Stweart Copeland will perform together at next months Grammys, before any tour announcements are made.

February 1st 2007 "24hrs"(free Vancouver newspaper)
ON THE TAIL OF THE POLICE
North Shore Studios may deny The Police are using its Studio 5 to rehearse for any upcoming Grammy performance, but the scene outside says otherwise.
Hovering around the entrance are two security guards and a large white truck flanked by a champagne-coloured SUV.
A source says Stewart Copeland arrives with his morning coffee close to 10am with the rock group beginning rehearsal a short while after. Reports have placed Sting strolling through Whistler Village.(world class ski resort located 2 hours from town)

----------------------------------------------------------------

Will this through April after the 3 week Lute tour that starts this weekend?

The original Police thread has disappeared. You can't even find it on other pages which is a bit of a mystery.

In any event, I thought I would put up some of the great youtube live performances again:

Unfortunately, viacom has taken down the Police performance on the German TV Program Musikladen that took place on January 18, 1979 , and was one of the best Police shows on youtube. Probably the best live version of So Lonely.


The show from February 21, 1979 at the Hatfield Polytechnics is still up. Great show as well, and while actually be broadcast on VH1 Classic tonight! This is the Outlandos D Amour tour and the band plays Message In A Bottle for the first time, several months before it was actually recorded. Great show!!!

So Lonely
Fall Out
Hole In My Life
Truth Hits Everybody
Message In A Bottle
Peanuts
Roxanne
Next To You
Can't Stand Losing You


Here is a clip of the Police playing Roxanne at the Pink Pop Festival in Geleen Netherlands on June 4, 1979:

Roxanne

Here is about half of a Police concert from the Regatta De Blanc tour. This show was in Hamburg Germany on January 11, 1980 , 3 months after the release of the Police's second album Regatta De Blanc. This was filmed for the German TV program, "Rockpalast".

Sting's voice is a bit hoarse for this show, and his bass almost goes out completely during Walking On The Moon, but it is a good show with the songs performed in slightly different ways than at other shows.

Next To You
So Lonely
Walking On The Moon
Deathwish
Bring On The Night
Visions Of The Night
The Beds To Big Without You
Message In A Bottle

This is the first Police documentary, called "Police In The East". This documentary follows the Police through the Winter and Spring of 1980 on the last part of their tour for Reggatta De Blanc. The Police play Australia, Japan, China, and India.

"Police In The East"

Here are 3 songs from a Police show in Frejus France on August 28, 1980. The Police had just finished recording Zenyatta Mondatta 3 weeks earlier and were already on tour for it, even though the album would not be released until the first week of October 1980. Some of the best live versions I have ever seen of the following songs:

Driven To Tears
De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da
Roxanne

The following is the entire Police show(minus When the World is Running..) in Essen Germany on October 18, 1980 at the Grugahalle. It was filmed for the German TV show Rockpalast. Its the Zenyatta Mondatta tour, with the album having been just released two weeks prior to this show.

The show does not have the best mix. You can hear Stewart just fine, but Andy's guitar is difficult to hear as well as Stings Bass.

Don't Stand So...
Walking On The Moon
Deathwish
Fall Out
Man In A Suitcase
Bring On The Night
De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da
Truth Hits Everybody
Shadows In The Rain
The Beds To Big...
Driven To Tears
Message In A Bottle
Roxanne
Can't Stand Losing You
Next To You
So Lonely

The Police only played one show in Mexico while they were a band. Surprisingly, there are a few clips of this show on youtube. The Police played there on November 15, 1980 near the start of the Zenyatta Mondatta tour. They played the "Grand Ballroom" on the top floor of the "Hotel De Mexico" in Mexico City. Here is qoute from Andy Summers about this show:

Andy: "We played in a strange place. It was sort of in a new hotel and we played on the 20th floor. It was very expensive to get in. We played on a very sort of dangerous stage. It was falling apart as we played. Everyone went so crazy. We thought the whole stage would fall apart. It was good fun." ("Mexico FM"; 12-1990).


Shadows In The Rain
The Beds To Big Without You
Message In A Bottle

Only about 1 minute and a half of So Lonely

So Lonely

Here is some "Super 8 Footage" shot by a person who was at the Police Zenyatta Mondatta show in Minneapolis, MN at the Minneapolis Armory on November 18, 1980. Has Roxanne, Can't Stand Losing You, Truth Hits Every Body, and Don't Stand So Close To Me....




The following songs come from a show on the Zenyatta Mondatta Tour. Here are 7 songs from a show at the Budokan Hall in Tokyo Japan on February 2, 1981. This turned out to be the last Police show in Tokyo. But, the Police plan to play Japan at the end of 2007 or in early 2008 which should definitely see them playing Tokyo for the first time in nearly 27 years!!!

Don't Stand So Close To Me
Walking On The Moon
Bring On The Night
De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da
Message In A Bottle
Roxanne
Can't Stand Losing You


Here are 10 songs from the Police's first night in Vina Del Mar Chile on February 19, 1982. The Police played another show the following night. These are the only two shows The Police have played in Chile to date. The Police may be returning to Chile in late 2007 or early 2008! These particular shows on the Ghost In The Machine Tour took place at the "Quinta Vergara Anfiteatro" in Vina Del Mar, Chile.

Message In A Bottle
Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic
Walking On The Moon
Spirits In The Material World
Hungry For You
When The World Is Running....
The Beds To Big Without You
Bring On The Night
Roxanne
Don't Stand So Close To Me


Here is the second night in Vina Del Mar Chile on February 20, 1982 at the "Quinta Vergara Anfiteatro".

Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic
Spirits In The Material World http://www.stingus.net/forum/threads...=3440_0_17_0_C
De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da
Demolition Man
Shadows In The Rain
One World
Roxanne
Don't Stand So Close To Me
Can't Stand Losing You
So Lonely



This show is the Gateshead stadium show near Newcastle England on July 31, 1982 on the Ghost In The Machine Tour. U2 opened for The Police at this show. Bono came out and sang backing vocals on Invisible Sun.

These particular clips posted on youtube come from a mix of the show done in Japan in which the keyboard parts normaly in the background somehow got very high in the mix and unfortunately for some songs occasionally is louder than the band. Still, this is a really good show and 8 songs from it have been posted on youtube. The Japanese and Koran DVD is good, but if you can get the original that was broadcast in the United Kingdom, thats better because the keyboard mix problem is not there.

Fantastic versions of "Bring On The Night" and "Driven To Tears"!

Message In A Bottle
Walking On The Moon
The Beds To Big Without
De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da
Driven To Tears

Don't Stand So Close To Me
Roxanne


On September 3, 1982 , The Police headlined the first night of the US Festival to 140,000 people. It was the largest crowd the Police have played to, to date. The show took place in San Bernardino California at the Glen Helen Regional Park. About half of the show is available on youtube. Here it is:

When The World Is Running....
The Beds To Big Without You
De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da
Demolition Man
Shadows In The Rain
Bring On The Night
Driven To Tears
One World
Invisible Sun
Roxanne
Don't Stand So Close To Me




The following songs are from a Police show in Montreal on the Synchronicity tour. The show as on August 2, 1983 at a club called the Spectrum. It was the first Police club show in Canada since 1979 and took place the day before the Police played Montreal's OLYMPIC STADIUM or the "BIG O" as locals call it. Tickets to the club show were free and could only be obtained by identifying obscure snippets of songs on the radio. The band played a shorter show than normal, and it was filmed for international pay TV, as well as Showtime in the USA. Crowd footage from this club show is actually used in the Syncrhonicity Concert VHS/DVD which took place at Atlanta's Omni Arena.

The songs sound a little different from the Synchronicity Concert DVD which was filmed at the Omni Arena on November 2-3, 1983, about mid way through the tour. This show was on August 2, 1983 and the tour had just started on July 23, 1983 at Comiskey Park in Chicago. The tempo of some songs is a tad slower and the band sound a little "stiff" on some of them, normal with the start of a tour, but Sting's voice sounds a little better than on the show in Atlanta, and Andy Summers Guitar is higher in the mix. There are other small differences which many will notice as well. Its a great show with some fantastic footage of the band:



Synchronicity 1
Synchronicity 2
Walking In Your Footsteps + interview
Message In A Bottle
Wrapped Around Your Finger
Tea In The Sahara
Spirits In The Material World
Hole In My Life
EVERY BREATH YOU TAKE

It hasn't disappeared - it's been moved to the Lemonade Stand archive because it reached 500 posts and closed.

You can still access the thread by going there or using its link here:

There is one mistake above with all the live youtube performances. "Spirits In The Material World" for the second night in Vina Del Mar Chile is actually linked to the Sting fan website message board, stingus.net where much much of these youtube performances had been posted as well. Correct link is as follows:

February 20, 1982 Vina Del Mar Chile

Spirits In The Material World
