    The Sting performance was a fabulous night out. Sting performed admirably and to the satisfaction of his fans. As I compose this, I'm listening to his 1996 Mercury Rising album, "I Hung My Head" track, and its hard to tell he has aged since then and performed this cut superbly. Sting appears to have much more to give to his fans over the next number of years. His rendition of "Fragile" from 1987 Nothing Like The Sun was equally touching. My wife and our two friends thoroughly enjoyed the 2 hour event and were equally impressed with having the extra encores. - - - - - - - - - - - One small downside and unrelated to Sting's performance was having to listen to a constant loud chatter from 4 fans located directly behind us in section 109, who had no respect for others and it seems their focus was not on listening to the Sting performance but to use the time as a night of over indulgence with complete disregard or respect for those seated nearby. It's unfortunate to have to listen to this disturbance when my intent was to have a comfortable night out with my wife and our good friends.
