During the third song, If You Love Somebody Set Them Free, the East London Gospel Choir entered the stage from both sides. They accompanied Sting and the band for almost the entire show.
Before I Was Brought To My Senses: "It's nice to be at the Fleadh. Thanks for inviting me".
Halfway through the set a drunk guy was picked out by the security, which lead to a big cheer by the audience.
Before Englishman In New York: "OK, this song is called Englishman in the Finsbury Park. Right?".
Halfway through Fragile the tempo was speeded up.
