...has become fact

Today, officially, The Police (it's a band if you're that young) will be going on tour this summer... and I am willing to go to any lengths to see this show... perhaps multiple times. I might lost any stable savings I have and I am entirely ok with this.

I love this band... and by "love" I mean, they have provided the most soundtrack music for my life than any other source... I have read books and dictionary's just to find out the inspiration and meanings of allusions and words used in their songs... I have rewound (because I owned the tapes first) "King of Pain" countless times just to hear the descending line of notes that follow "it's the same old thing as yesterday" that echo's the "It's my soul up there" melody... when I was 8 and taped it off the radio... seriously... I watched their videos on MTV after Synchronicity came out with wide eyes because they were the coolest thing on the planet. I LOVE this band... and they broke up before I was old enough to see them live.

But today I woke up in a new world. A world where a band called "The Police" exist... today... not in the past... and I just don't know what to do with myself. I, honestly (this is all so dramatic) feel like I'm living in a hazy dream.

It is such a good day.

Ok, I finally saw it. I stoop to watch the Grammys, even for The Police. Sorry for the blasphemy.

Anyway...I remember being more excited for their performance on their induction into the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame. That was an awesome performance. This was an ok performance.

I do hope to see them on this tour though. Where did you see it official that they were touring. I knew of this Grammys thing for a while, but haven't heard confirmation of the tour anywhere yet.

And...yes, this is a step up for Sting, because even though he is a rock god, cameos on Studio 60 or lute playing don't really suit him right now. His latest was not the album I wanted at this point in time. Oh well.

Still I am excited for you!

if I'm out in Boston this summer (which is not definite yet or anything)...you can stay with me and go to the concert in Boston at Fenway. Is there anything better than hearing "Wrapped Around Your Finger" at Fenway Park? If so, I haven't found it yet.
