Just recently, my husband and I had a great privilege to watch STING Live in Manila at the Araneta Coliseum! This was our last major concert this year. Sting was AWESOME!!!!
He stood there with his guitar in his full rock star glory – tall, buffed, and awesome. And man, he can still hit the high notes. More than anything, his music has become a legend to us 40 somethings. Tell me, is there anyone out there who can NOT mouth Every Breath You Take? Or Roxanne? Even my teenage sons who were not even an “idea” back in the 80s have Police and Sting in their playlist.
I must say, there’s something about these 80s artists… they just get better with age, don’t you think? I mean, they look better (in their 50s!) and sound better. I don’t know about you, but these seasoned old-timers can’t be beat. The young bands out there should stop and think to themselves, “how can we sound better and look hotter in 30 years…”
Watch and learn, kids. Watch and learn.
So that caps our concert list for the year. Who’s next? Calling U2!!!
