(Separate upload) Hilarious moment at the beginning of the song, "SACRED LOVE" between Dominic Miller (Sting's amazing guitarist for 22 years already), and Sting. Just priceless.
Sting's "Back to Bass" Tour amazing opening concert at the HMV Hammersmith Apollo in London on Monday 19 March 2012. Sting singing "SACRED LOVE" (2003, album "Sacred Love").
Separate upload (see it together with "Fields of Gold" in a previous upload).
This song is even sexier in the rough like this, without the studio arrangements, and oh, man, those drums...! Genius.
The very first time I could attend a Sting's concert, having grown up with and loved his music all my life, I enjoyed it SO much, one of the happiest days of my life. A dream come true, I'll never forget it and I hope there are many more to come. Back to Bass, back to basics. He didn't need anything else but a bare stage and 5 more 1st-class musicians. Also, the genius of Howard Page behind the sound mixing console and Danny Nolan's gorgeous light design. All simply STUNNING and UNFORGETTABLE.
Thanks so much, Sting, for the sheer happiness you brought. X
