16. STING, 8/31/85

Location: Sandstone Amphitheatre, Bonner Springs, KS
Support act(s): ?
In the company of: Gregg H.

This was Sting’s first solo tour, supporting his first solo album, “The Dream of the Blue Turtles.” The outdoor venue was the perfect setting for my then fave performer. This would be the first time I heard Sting perform Police classics on his own. As he always does, Sting steered clear of regurgitating the songs as they were recorded. He is a phenomenal musician and puts a different slant on each song each time you see him.

I don’t recall the set list or even if he had an opener, but he was the main ticket that night.
