Sting - Concert information

[Updated: August 12, 2001]

05-07-1997 / Aachen / Katschhof / GERMANY
Setlist same as: 20-06-1997, but I'm So Happy I Can't Stop Crying was omitted and a few lines of Consider Me Gone were added to When The World Is Running Down.
Support act: Maria Lux, Duncan Sheik.
Attendance: 8000; sellout.
The show was part of the "Aachener Kultur-sommer 1997", which was held from June to September. The show was played on a square right in the city centre. Long rows of people occupied the streets before the square was opened. There was no soundcheck.
Sting seemed to be in a good mood. Before Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic he pointed out to the "Rathaus", just opposite to the stage and told it looked like his own house, "although mine is a bit smaller".
Although the band played parts of Consider Me Gone in the past during When The World Is Running Down, Sting also sung a few lines during this song tonight.
Big fireworks were launched after the show.

Also let me know when you have any kind of memorabilia (concert tickets, flyers. concert posters, photos and reviews).
Have you ever attended a concert of The Police, Sting, Andy Summers or Stewart Copeland? Please send me the information and thereby help to enlarge the Concert Achive.
