The Police Concert!

July 20, 2007

Last night was epic. The Police came to Philadelphia, delivering 100% on the anticipation that had been building since I got my tickets 3 months ago. As soon as Stewart Copeland hit the gong to start their set, the stadium erupted with this energy that turned everyone into screaming 16-year old girls. Not many bands can reunite 20 years after they were the biggest band in the world and play a show with the same energy, heart, and creative enthusiasm as these three. My favorite tracks of the night were “Walking on the Moon”, “Can’t Stand Losing You” which included a few rounds of “Reggatta de Blanc” in the middle, and “So Lonely”. They played 2 encores, ending on a high energy punk song,”Next to You”. The sound, the lights, the energy, everything was spectacular. This was the kind of show you brag about witnessing for years to come. And I’ve been to some brag-worthy shows; DEVO, The Ramones, Woodstock 99, but this one may have just taken the number one spot on my brag list. Who will take the throne next? Nobody, that’s who.
