In your own words: 30+ years of passion for Sting brought me to the corner of 57th & 9th. I stood there for about 10 minutes, and thought about all the years with his songs. It was funny that when Sting appeared in a Kirin Beer TV commercial (1987?), I went to several liquor stores trying to get a poster or a standing ad... (but I got nothing). Me and my boyfriend from college were always playing the Police songs while we were driving... The "My Songs" tour definitely takes me back to those days. Can't wait to see Sting in Japan.
