Yes, that is me and Sting. Tal got tickets to The Police concert at Jones Beach last Monday. He won them at an auction at a Unitus fundraiser. Unitus is an awesome nonprofit that does microfinance all over the world. The Police teamed up with them for this reunion tour and because of that they donated all access passes to the concerts to be auctioned off at Unitus fundraisers. So that would explain why I am standing right next to him in the picture. We got to go up on the stage for the sound check to meet him and the members of the band. Then he even let us sing with him for a couple of songs. There were some 30 something girls that were obsessed with him and kind of hogged the microphone, but nonetheless it was really cool.
Here we are singing "Message in a Bottle," after we finished Sting looked over at us and said "you know you were singing into a dead mic right?" That was pretty funny, but those girls wouldn't let us near the other mic.
So we had the backstage tour that included seeing all the backstage stuff including the tour busses and learning how the whole tour works. Quite a lot goes into these things. This was the 3rd to last show of the tour of about 200 shows.
We only had 2 tickets but we lucked out and got Noah in for the actual show so he was there to see it with us. It was awesome to be there with my bros to see a band that we have heard since we were kids. There are a few more pics below and a video or two. Thanks Tal!
