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
Hole In My Life

Message In A Bottle

Roxanne

Can't Stand Losing You


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

Walking On The Moon

Bring On The Night

The Beds To Big Without You


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"

Part 1

Part 3

Part 5

Part 7

Part 9



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

Roxanne

Walking On The Moon

Fall Out

Bring On The Night

Truth Hits Everybody

The Beds To Big...

Message In A Bottle

Can't Stand Losing You

So Lonely

The Beds To Big Without You


Only about 1 minute and a half of So Lonely

So Lonely


Walking On The Moon

De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da

Roxanne



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

Walking On The Moon

Hungry For You

The Beds To Big Without You

Roxanne



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

De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da

Shadows In The Rain

Roxanne

Can't Stand Losing You




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

The Beds To Big Without

Driven To Tears

Don't Stand So Close To Me



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....

De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da

Shadows In The Rain

Driven To Tears

Invisible Sun

Don't Stand So Close To Me

Synchronicity 2

Message In A Bottle

Tea In The Sahara

Hole In My Life

Roxanne

King Of Pain

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:

Just got an email from Best Buy, 2nd Fenway show presale Sunday for the 99.99987% of reward zone folks who got shut out of fenway 1:

New Fenway Park Show Added:
Another Opportunity For Presale Tickets

Got your Ticketmaster Presale Code but weren’t able to buy presale tickets for the Boston show? You’re in luck! You’ve got another opportunity to score presale tickets for a second, just-added Boston show—using your current Code.

Tickets will go fast so act quickly for this presale begining Sunday, Feb. 18, at noon EST.

Here’s how the two-step process works:

1. If you no longer know your Code and wish
to view it again, log on to
MyRewardZone.com, click on The Police
promotion, and then click “continue” on
The Police promotion page to be brought
to the concert venue page. Your Code will
appear next to the Boston show under the
“Status” column. Your Code gives you the
opportunity to buy two tickets online at
Ticketmaster.com during the presale
period for the Boston show on
July 29, 2007.

Note: If you’ve already used your Code to buy presale tickets, you will not be able to use it again.

2. Go to Ticketmaster.com for your
opportunity to purchase two tickets, while
supplies last. Presale begins Sunday,
February 18, 2007, at noon EST. Best
Buy will not generate new Codes for this
show. Only those members who currently
have a Code for the Boston show – and
have not already used it to buy tickets –
can take part in this offer.

Tickets will go fast so act now!

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
