The concert was great!

Elvis and the Police did not disappoint us last night. Elvis took to the stage at precisely 7:30PM and he played for 55 minutes without a break. He had a few words for the crowd, but he stuck to his business, singing such greats as "Pump it up," "Alison," and "(What's so funny about) Peace Love and Understanding." Elvis trotted off the stage following his last song and the lights went up in Van Andel Arena, meaning that his night was done. About 30 minutes later, the lights dimmed and the Police took the stage. Once again, Dee and I were not disappointed. Sting (Gordon Sumner), guitarist Andy Summers and drummer Stewart Copeland played like they had never split up, dancing about the stage with renditions of "Roxanne," "Message in a Bottle," and "Every Breath you Take." Sting's bass guitar and Andy's Stratocaster were clearly well worn instruments, but they made great music.

I so want to see this show when it arrives in Phoenix. Alas, we have no baby sitter.

No "Syncronicity"?

Oh, man! I wish I lived a little closer than a 4 hour Southwest flight away from the VoS. I think I could handle the Tot for a few hours!
