If they raised the stage 5 ft or so, those in the floor seats could see even on a night like last night when most of the people in the floor seats stood up for the whole concert. or have a sloping floor. The concert sounded good. Video screens would also help & have been appreciated at other concerts - yes, they block some views - but Mile One could easily not sell seats with obstructed views or sell them for lower prices.

Remember when Sam Shades and sponsers brought in a bunch of hip hop acts to Mile One. Yes....those same acts are now found in the 99 cent bin at your local grocery store. Sting, like most seasoned artists (not singers) have spent years mastering their talent. Sorry Game, Ludacris, this bus is full. Maybe the Mount Pearl Rec Centre will have you, I hear they have a large black wannabe population.

I saw his last show in the US at Mohegan Sun in Connecticut last weekend (and saw him here 2 years ago for the same tour), and he hasn't lost anything over the years! Fantastic show! Awesome supporting band members, although it would have been nice to have Dominic Miller's son on stage again. Can't wait for the new album in September (from his play "The Last Ship")

I have seen many concerts in St. John's; from Tina Turner, Hughie Lewis and the News to Kenny Rogers, Anne Murray and Willie Nelson. Last nights concert was by far my favorite!! From the first note to the last, Sting didn't disappoint. Often times you hear an artist on a CD, then see them in concert and go away disappointed. Not last night!! His voice was truly perfect in tone and clarity. I loved every single minute and if he were to perform again tonight, I would be looking for another ticket to witness the whole thing over again! Come back soon Sting!!!!!!

He was good but Tina was better, by far.

You can call it Dinosaur rock if you want but bands today just don't move you like the older guys. Keep going Sting we're still listening to ya!

The so called major acts of today's generation won't play anywhere outside of the major cities because most don't last more than a couple of years and they need make the money while they can.

I enjoyed it, even though he was 15 min late (Screech-ins can be rough). The back up singer hit a note that would put Mariah Carey to shame. I liked that he talked to the crowd a bit.

The concert was absolutely amazing. But, Ken, why even begin this article with the negative spin that "some" groaned when the concert was announced, heralding it "dinosaur rock"? Why even go there? Equal groans can be heard when teen pop groups or country stars come to town. Musical taste varies. You make some really irrelevant points. Rock on, Sting! :)
