The Police FINAL CONCERT Poster Madison Square Garden NYC 2' x 3' Rare 2008 Large Wall Size NEW. For the August 7th 2008 Final Concert at New York City's famed Madison Square Garden Arena. The world renowned rock band, The Police, wrapped up their final sold-out concert August 7, 2008 at NYC's Madison Square Garden with a very loud bang , and with an opening act no less unique than the incredible B-52s ! The Police ended one of rock n roll's most successful reigns ( and reunions ) with a tribute to other famous rock trios, and with an assist from some real cops and some goofiness. This, their 150th gig of their highly anticipated reunion tour that started fourteen months ago was sold-out and fittingly, a benefit for WNET and WLIW, two New York area public tv stations. It's was great way for the band to thank the NYC area. Bassist/vocalist Sting, guitarist Andy Summers and percussionist Stewart Copeland added some welcomed "end of the road" silliness; walking off to cartoon signature line, "That's all, folks." But heart was also there, four songs into the night, Sting thanked his band mates for "your musicianship, your companionship, your friendship and your understanding." "The real triumph of this tour is that we haven't strangled each other," he said. "Not to say it hasn't crossed my mind — or Andy's or Stewart's." It's been well reported thru the years that Sting and Copeland both have volatile personalities and nearly drove each other crazy before the band finally broke up 1984. But time heals most wounds, and the tour's phenomenal business was so attractive, the band kept adding concert dates well beyond their original plans. The last concert marked the end of their reunion tour, which has seen them play 150 gigs to nearly 3.7million people around the world. Appropriately, they filled the gig with a set that included hits, including 'Roxanne', 'So Lonely' and 'Message in a Bottle', and fittingly were joined at one point by the New York City police band. Sting also had his recent reunion-tour beard in full form until the first encore (encores were simulcast on the web), the crowd roared when he appeared clean shaven. A camera had followed Sting backstage as he had the scraggly beard shaved off by attractive female stylists (note he never put his shirt back on). The laughing audience watched the unexpected showe on big screens, upon Sting return, Copeland and Summers came over to kiss the clean-shaven singer. Sting still had s spot of leftover shaving cream in the corner of his mouth as he came out to sing "Roxanne." This final reunion tour puts the Police standing alongside USA's the Eagles as the two most successful reformations in rock history. The Eagles are now still an active touring and recording unit again; but the Police , sadly , claim they're definitely done. They opened the show with bits of Cream's "Sunshine of Your Love" and later played the Jimi Hendrix Experience's "Purple Haze," the covers a nod to two other famous rock trios. And, unlike many bands in later years, The Police remain a true trio; other than Stewart's drum tech (Jeff Seitz ?- who once subbed for Copeland at a Police gig in Paris unannounced) who took a swing at the gong and the 18-piece marching band from the NYPD were the only other musicians allowed onstage Thursday, no tributes or sinag-alongs with guest artists either. Summers performed a majestic solo during So Lonely and the mindless brilliance of the De do do do, De da da da had the MSG audience singing along. Roxanne and Every Breath You Take were a thrill and so amazingly close to the original tracks that is was , well , magical. as well , their rendition of Cream's Sunshine of Your Love, showed the band's stunning rock abilities. They can still bring a drive to their songs that Sting's solo calmer work does not possess. Sting, nearly 57, can still rock hard on material - "Demolition Man" for example - and the years rocking haven't worn down his voice significantly. Early tunes like "Can't Stand Losing You," "So Lonely" and "Next to You" were accurate to the group's original sound which was refreshing at the time and garnered them legions of fans, and the lesser-known songs were on par with their biggest hits. The New York tour finale was not by accident; they wanted to call it quits in the same city of their first U.S. gig over 30 years ago. Their initial visit to NYC back then was in the much smaller; though a little less famous venue, the recently closed CBGB's club which showcased and jettisoned so many amazing performers back in the day. The other lighthearted moments was seeing Sting's daughters onstage to dance beside him during "Every Little Thing She Does is Magic." And, at the show's end, a member of the road crew, dressed outrageously as a fat opera singer/lady lip-synched a sad aria as a sad sign of the band's eminent departure. The band ended their performance, and their career together as a band, with 'Next To You'. An amazing night indeed.
