Honestly, It's difficult to review the CONCERT because the sound was so
terrible that I'm not sure what I was listening to and a good amount of
time I could barely tell what song they were playing. I'm not kidding, it
was that muddy and distorted, particularly the midranges. The lyrics were
unintelligible, and Gordie's comments from the stage sounded like
MMMRPHHHHH, BLURRRLFFFF, HHAAARRRRFFF. It appeared that the Police were
using their own sound equipment, so this is on them ... DISGRACEFUL !!!
You can't consider yourselves to be a premier band and then rip people of
on a money gathering tour like this ... SHAME ON THEM !!! The only
invisible sun I was aware of was the whirring cash counters in the bowels
of Dodger Stadium with the $12.00 beers and $20.00 parking ... hey
everyone lets cash in !!! The WORST sound I have heard in 32 years of
concert going. Oh, and no bigscreens for us peons in the cheap seats ...
maybe it's part of the "plausible deniability" plan ... in coming years
the band can deny they were there and I won't be able to prove otherwise

What happened? A Police fan since my high school days back in the 80's, I
attended the concert at Dodger Stadium. Last night they sounded like a
garage band. Harmonies were off and at times I wasn't sure what the
beginning of several songs were being played. I got the impression that
the band didn't spend time together to rehearse prior to going on tour.
Words sounded distorted and hollow as if they were singing into a tin can.
You couldn't help but notice a slight echo being bounced around. People
seated around me were talking to one another or on there PDA'S. I really
didn't feel that vibe/high energy level that one would expect, especially
at a stadium event. I would have been better off purchasing a Police
concert DVD at a Best Buy, watching it on T.V. at home, and saving myself
several hundred dollars.
Overall, although the sound quality was not great and the band didn't
quite seem to gel together I'm still a Police fan.
