Sting - Concert information

[Updated: August 12, 2001]

17-02-1988 / Cleveland, OH / Public Hall / USA
Setlist same as: 07-02-1988, but King Of Pain was added after They Dance Alone.
Before Englishman In New York: "Nice to be back in Cleveland" and later during the intro: "This song is not about Cleveland, but it could be".
Before Straight To My Heart: "How do you feel? Sounds alright to me. Cleveland is one of my favourite towns, I have to say. I'll tell you why. This town reminds me of my home town. It's called Newcastle. It's dirty. This song is in 7/4 time. What does that mean?".
Before Consider Me Gone: "I got some sad news today. Someone told me they closed Swingo's. How know Swingo's Motel? [..] They knocked it down for a parking lot. Tonight's show is very long. It goes on and on and on. So you don't get to tired, we have a break for about twinty minutes. Then we come back and play all night. In about two numbers time, we'll go off. You can't leave the building, because the doors are locked. This is called After Today Consider Me Gone".
Before Roxanne: "What do you wanna hear? What do you wanna hear? No, no, no. I won't sing that tonight. Every night in my life. What do you wanna hear? Give me one night off. Please, just one. Are you sure about this?".
Before Message In A Bottle: "Danny got these bullshit protectors on his ears. Did you know Danny likes Julio Iglesias?" and started to sing the line: "To all the girls I have loved".
