Wonderful!
I feel so grateful that I was there at this very special performance on October 2nd...As I watched it again today on PBS, it was just so overwhelming--it brought it all back--I was stomping my stiletto so hard, (during What Have We Got) I almost drove it clean through my foot! I agree with Red28--Practical Arrangement should stay. When it brings a person physical pain in their chest just listening to it...well, what else do you want?

Having been a fan of Sting's since The Police, it's wonderful to see how he has evolved as a musician. He is constantly changing & growing. I loved his music from "The Last Ship". The lyrics were poignant, touching and at times, humourous. Thank you Sting!

I loved the show. It made the album "The Last Ship" makes so much sense. I love the album and wondered about the different story lines. I think they should leave " Practical Arrangement" alone it's a great storyline,and song. Sting is never a bore. I would love to see the play. I hope it's sold on DVD. Maybe others can sing it over and over like Carousel..

As an English woman alien in San Antonio I loved this show. Made me very homesick but like the folk song style of it all. Good luck

I thoroughly enjoyed this presentation on many levels. I love the music Sting composed for "The Last Ship", and I loved watching him present it in such a warm, relaxed and intimate setting. I recently joined the Sting membership and missed out on being at the concert. But I sincerely hope not to miss any more performances.

Paul Simon and Sting prove they're aging with grace in Vancouver show - Dynamic duo were seamless and slick at Rogers Arena...

Ten years apart in age and a world apart in importance. Paul Simon and Sting make interesting tour mates. The two are good friends and that's what sees them out for 18 dates of the On Stage Together tour. Last night at Rogers Arena was night number seven of the tour, and backed by a 14-piece band the show was seamless and slick. From the opening notes of 'Brand New Day', the title track to Sting's 1996 solo album of the same name, the way the two intended to merge the material was made clear. Two bands and two distinct singers - plus the benefit of Sting playing bass - would turn everything into a world music-tinged orchestra where Sting, 63, and Simon, 73, could trade verses as well as do solo sets with their own bands plus extras...
