I probably stand alone, but here goes...to me The Police stink beyond anything except perhaps the Dave Matthews Band. They are the ONLY group that I will change the radio station if one of their songs starts playing. I'm serious. I would rather drive my truck into a lake than listen to that junk.

Did I mention I also jump out of planes, run into fires, and crawl miles underground? Don't pay me no bother...just hand me that barf bag.

LMAO - so this is a no on the $15,000 tix for you Dan? I like the Police but would not pay $15,000 for any show (NONE, nada, never)

btw - didn't see the Grammy's. Were they any good with the initial get-back-together?

More suited to my budget for sure.

I think Stewart Copeland is a phenomenal drummer. Andy Summers has made some amazing music that you'll never hear (especially the stuff he did with Robert Fripp). But the Police were a "made-for-money" act. All of these guys basically just rolled over for some cash during the punk explosion. I've seen a documentary where Copeland talks of "dragging Sting to this punk club" to see what the new hype was all about. Sting didn't care for the scene at all, but followed Copeland's lead that there was money to be made.

I actually saw the Police twice during their hey-day (the stuff you'll do for a gal!). On both occasions, the only member that stood out (for me) was Stewart Copeland. The band was "playing" behind so many sequencers and pre-recorded tracks ... it was almost comical! Half the time Sting and Andy summers were just jumping up and down on small trampolines. I don't mean to bash them, but I didn't get it. Personally, I wouldn't walk across the street to seem them for 50 cents.

For $15k, Jesus Christ himself would have to be sitting in on slide guitar! And, still, it's the Police! Even JC could only make them sound so-so.

Nope, standing right up there with you, TanDan. Their sound grates my nerves and brings back memories of the worst era I can think of as far as the arts go

Just sitting here thinking of that man saying ROXANNE makes me grit my teeth ... *shudder*

Just for th erecord, tickets are 250.00, 90.00 and 50.00 at MSG face. If there are morons that pay 15k for a ticket, all the power to the seller.
As far as Police bashing, hey everyone has an opinion.

I wouldnt pay 15k to see anyone except maybe the 4 original beatles together and even then its only if i had the money to pay a band 5k an hour to play for me.
PS why trash the police and dave matthews band if you combine those two bands you have at least five amazing world class musicians(Carter Beauford, Stewart copeland, stephan lessard, boyd tinsley, andy summers, I'd even go as far as to say dave matthews himself is extremely talented as a rythm player, songwriter and live performer)
