Comments: Exact set list not known. The songs I have included here were gleaned from the Toronto Star and Toronto Sun reviews of the show. Great invention that interwebs… Still, I couldn’t find out exactly who her bass player and drummer were. These are just best guesses.

Update March 17, 2015: Once again, the wonderful resource has come to the rescue. Obviously a fan of Ms McLachlan attended this show (or came across a recording of said gig) and more full fleshed out her set for the evening.

Whats that? My impression of her set? I plead the fifth on that one. Sorry.

Comments: So, Rhonda said she had seen The Police in their heyday and that Sting was a complete and utter asshole. Thing is, at this time and place, our buddy Stefan was a massive Sting fan. Accordingly, we agreed to attend. You know what, it wasn’t that bad. Even Rhonda said he was much better as a solo artist than he had ever been as the leader of The Police.

The fact that he had a tight, kick ass group of musicians surrounding him probably didn’t hurt none. I’ll admit right here and now that one of my all time favorite live albums is actually Bring On The Night. I bought it on vinyl; I bought it on CD. This is one killer freaking album. So, my curiosity for seeing Sting live had already been primed.

In a lot of ways, he did not disappoint. Pity the same can’t be said for the last time we saw him live.
