Last Friday, Sting performed in Bangalore ... and I had a ticket! He played at the Palace Grounds (the palace is Bangalore Palace).

Sting performed hits like "Message in a Bottle," "Desert Rose" and "Every Breath You Take," as well as a few songs from his new album, "Sacred Love." He did one of the LONGEST versions of "Roxanne" I have ever heard.

The crowd was up but nowhere near as noisy as an audience in New York or London. And there were some odd moments (which you get at any concert). Like the guy who insisted on singing along at the top of his lungs. Or the three "wanker brothers" (as I came to think of them) who snapped their fingers to "Fields of Gold" and generally did not have a clue.

There were lots of police. The cops tend not to wear handguns. They have long, wooden or plastic batons.

But, all in all, it was a good concert and a fun time.
