Pepsi Center, Denver CO
The Police took center stage on Saturday after 20-some years of being ex-super star musicians. I suspect the lure of $1M per show was too tempting. I don’t think Sting needed the money, but Andy Summers and Stewart Copeland may have been in another boat entirely. The two of them seem to have kept a lower profile in the music world.
I seem to recall the Copeland had some success in the music production end of the business, but that momentary attempts with other bands didn’t gain much traction. I bought two Animal Logic albums, but they haven’t stood the test of time and I recently sold them for $2/disc to a music store.
Here is a video of the night taken from a small digital camera that also captured video. The quality gives a sense of what was experienced.
