Sting was joined by surprise guest Paul Simon at his Back To Bass concert at the Borgata in Atlantic City, where they paired up for performances of "The Boxer" and "Fields Of Gold." Check out this shot of the two rehearsing before the concert.
Sting made more than a few dreams come true Monday night. Several people waiting to get into the show at Credit Union Place said that seeing him live in concert was on their "bucket list" of things to do before they die. "His voice is just so pitch perfect," said Josée Ouellon, of Moncton. "And of course the music from The Police is good too. It's classic. It's never going to grow old on me," she said. Margaret Parsons, of Halifax, has also waited a lifetime to see Sting - though she never imagined she'd be doing it in Summerside, P.E.I...

A bone-crunching 'Demolition Man' followed by the gorgeous, quiet 'Fields of Gold', with lovely fingerpicked guitar by Miller, was a fine loud/soft mix. Tickell's violin solo on the jazzy 'Driven to Tears' was sensational and the funky 'Heavy Cloud No Rain' got everyone up and shaking their fannies. 'Message in a Bottle' was a euphoric rocker followed by the delicate, melodic 'Shape of My Heart', easily the best one-two punch of the night. And the dancing bear mascots wearing Bruins jerseys during second encore 'Next To You' got folks giggling and clapping.
