The Police played their first concert in more than 20 years last night (May 27) in front of a 4.000-strong fan club-only audience at Vancouver’s GM Place, rocking through a 21-song, 125-minute set that went heavy on hits from the band’s early 1980s heyday. With the bang of a gong, drummer Stewart Copeland opened a two-hour-plus show that started with “Message in a Bottle” and closed with the spirited early hit “Next to You.” The setlist was the same on 28th but with DSSCTM and Spririts that swapped places. Obviously they still need to smoothen, as well as avoid playback syndroms…
For the die hard fans, the entire show is already available in an outstanding quality as live bootleg, let the quest begin :-). The official EPK can be found here.

Following songs were played:
Message In A Bottle
Synchronicity II
Don’t Stand So Close To Me
