During Englishman In New York Sting clearly enjoyed himself, he toyed with the lyrics ("I'm an English dude in New York") and took a seat near the drum riser as the band jammed with increasing assurance.
Special guest Branford Marsalis joined in on soprano sax near the end of this song, then traded licks with Steve Coleman, who played alto, in a spirited exchange on Sister Moon.
During Rock Steady Sting ordered the band to stop playing and pretended he lost the lyrics.
Before Spirits In The Material World: "On Friday-night we'll play in Rio de Janeiro for two-hundred-thousand people".
After Spirits In The Material World: "That song reminds me of something. I'm a material girl. I love that song".
In een review in Rolling Stone wordt ook gesproken over Consider Me Gone en Fortress Around Your Heart.
