Attendance: 8,500; sellout.
Before Consider Me Gone: "My God, what are you loud. I want to make sure the people in that back are making a noise. Let's hear the people in the back".
Before One World: "This is a very solid moment in the show. It's the moment where Darryl Jones and I take off our shades. I took these to bed last night. Forgot to take them off. OK, you know this song. He said confidently. And when you know a song you have to sing with Sting. Right? Take that away from me, Danny. I got a hat and a parachute now. Sorry Dolette".
Before We Work The Black Seam: "I always want to get laid, but this is ridiculous. Thanks, I got one of these. HAHA. Press the button of these [?]".
"This next song was part of the music for a film called Brimstone & Treacle, which actually did very well in the Bay Area. I seem to remember. This song is called I Burn For You".
Before Every Breath You Take: "Wait a minute, what's that sign over there? 'Can I have your baby?'. How many of you are holding it. Seven. Well, I'll see if I can sneak you in. It's a busy life. What shall we play now? Happy Birthday? Forty Fucking Nights, I don't know that one?".
