"The first time we played at this Bay Area, there weren't as many people as this," stated Sting before Murder By Numbers. "We played Davis College, that was the first time we were here. We played in somebody's coffin room. There were about maybe fifteen, fifty people. And now we are here. This song is about the cynical manipulation of large numbers of people. It does happen".
During Can't Stand Losing You: "You know what I said before about Los Angeles. The point is this. What if we make so much noise here tonight, that the noise went up in the air and sought and pissed everybody off in Los Angeles. Wouldn't that be great. [..] Up in the air, all the way down to that awful place full of smog". Later: "I'd like you to thank our backing vocalists. Big hand. All these girls are my sisters. My father was very adventurous. On the drums Stewart Copeland. He is my sister as well".
