Report from Sting's Dublin gig...

He came, he saw, he sang and he wore a bright coloured flowery shirt. It’s 8.57pm and Sting is walking on stage. A tribal bass line pumps put across the fields as he kicks off with one of his lesser-known songs “I still love you.”

Thankfully, the flies that are attacking my neck are keeping me to busy to listen to the first song. However, as I try to shake them off it looks like I’m dancing anyway.

Sting in concert is not like Robbie Williams or Tom Jones. It’s more like the Lighthouse family. His songs are good but nice and soft. The type of stuff that suits a drive down the country or a romantic night in.

Not the type of music you can mosh around to in a field. Anyway, while Sting plays the end of his first tune the crowd suddenly gets excited.

With the language of a gentleman Sting screamed out to over 12,000 loyal fans in Dublin’s Marley park, “Hey Dublin, how ye doing.”

As all of the 12,000 people in the audience reply with a roar, Sting continues, “How nice to be back in Dublin and what a wonderful evening.”

Then with seconds the show really takes off. “Set them free” his anti-apartited song rings out followed by “After the rain has fallen.” It’s not quiet like his days with The Police but you have to remember Sting is getting old.

Next is a short guitar solo followed by one of my own favourites “We’ll be together tonight.” He poses ahead of his next tune to shout “Slante” to the crowd before continuing with “Crossing the River,” “Lost without you,” and “Seven Days.”

As the night moves on we are offered “Fields of Gold” plus a few older Police numbers which send the generally middle aged crowd into overdrive.

By 10.30 pm it’s all over and Sting is gone. I’m told he’s not even staying the night in Dublin. But, flying back to London that night. So, much for the days of rock and roll?
