The Police triumph in Barcelona in the only Spanish concert included in their world tour.
Just a few months ago the news that British pop groupThe Police were going to play one concert in Spain as part of their world tour was greeted enthusiastically by Spanish fans. The concert, which sold out within hours took place last night in Barcelona in the Olympic stadium Montjuic.
At 10 pm to the sounds of Bob Marley echoing through the darkness Sting, Andy Summers on guitar and Stewart Copland on drums appeared on stage, then the first notes of Message in a Bottle were played and the whole stadium went wild. This was followed by Synchronicity II and twenty or more songs. One of the most goosebump-producing moments was then The Police sang, together with most of the audience, one of their most popular hits: Roxanne.
The stage was spectacularly large and there were six enormous screens showing different views. Needless to say the lighting and sound were excellent.
Few special effects were necessary as the music itself played by the trio, who seemed to have the same charisma as twenty years ago, was enough to satisfy the audience.
The concert ended with an electrifying performance of Next to You.
