The crowd was really truly excited when the boys walked on stage for the first time. I could even see Sting give a nervous, almost bashful smile when he heard the initial roar. (I always clap as much as I can, so I dont come off like a chump with a camera.) Everyone was rocking, and super animated. Andy was rocking the balls off his Strat, while Sting dug new holes into his beautifully worn p-bass. Of course Stewart sported the ever fashionable drummer gloves. They even started jumping around the stage at one point! Rock music keeps the dust off your bones.
