My husband and I went to see Sting last night. It was beyond awesome.
We were twenty-three rows back and a little to the left, and the view was excellent. Even though we were near the back of the orchestra section in the theatre, twenty-three rows is twenty-three rows, and if Sting had been playing in Rogers Arena our seats would have been worth a small fortune.
I love the lights on the ceiling in the theatre! The sparkled like stars, and made the room feel almost magical as we waited for the band to take the stage.
Speaking of waiting… Holy moly, but some people are slow! I was shocked at how many people took their seats after the 8:00 pm start time. Maybe they didn’t want to see the entire show, but those of us who were already in our seats certainly did, and we didn’t appreciate having our views blocked by people going up and down the aisles and squeezing into the rows. There were so many latecomers, the theatre held the start of the performance by over fifteen minutes.
I know it’s hard to see, but the figure in the centre wearing the white t-shirt is Sting. Oh, and the shadow along the right side is just one of the many, many late people annoying those of us who arrived before the show started.
I loved the show. I got to hear a whole bunch of songs I’d never heard before – I’m totally hunting them down on iTunes. Of course he played some of is super popular songs – and those were amazing. The band did two encores, and Sting came on stage and sang Message in a Bottle with only an accoustic guitar as a third encore.
All in all, it was a phenomenal night.
