While Vinnie stand next to Sting before performing You Still Touch Me Sting said: "Vinnie, today is a special day for you, right? It's his birthday!". Sting started to sing Happy Birthday and the audience joined in.
Sting said: "Je vais vous présenter mes copains ... I Muvrini". The two lead vocalists of this band from Corsica walked on stage. One of them was carrying a traditional instrument (a "goedidoedi"), looking more or less like a guitar. The band started Field Of Gold. Sting and I Muvrini shared the vocals right from the first verse. Later Noa came back on stage and joined for backing vocals. I Muvrini even sang some parts of the songs in Corsican.
Marina and Philippe joined on vocals during I'm So Happy I Can't Stop Crying.
