Overview

Sting performs 18 songs from his history with the Police and as a solo artist on this DVD. The picture is a 1.33:1 full-screen affair. The sound, in English, is recorded in Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound that occasionally gives the viewer the aural impression that they are standing in the middle of the stage during the show. Although there are no subtitles and the soundtrack is not closed-captioned, the DVD does provide some backstage footage.

Whether you know him as Sting, the front-man for the Police, or Sting, the solo artist, or Sting, the film actor, there's no denying that the man originally known as Gordon Sumner puts on a blast of a show. Sting's first musical effort on DVD -- several of his films, such as Dune and Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels, are already available in the format -- features a show recorded at the at the Universal Amphitheatre in Los Angeles during the performer's recent tour. (Note: the title is also available on VHS.) A chunk of the 18-song show is given over to songs from Sting's 1999 release, Brand New Day, including renditions of all but two cuts ("Big Lie Small World" and "Prelude to the End of the Game") from the CD. The eight Brand New Day tracks alternate with older cuts through the first two thirds of the show, where a trio of the new songs leads into a big-kick finish of fan-friendly faves. The tracks follow in order, with the original albums in parentheses:
  • "A Thousand Years" (Brand New Day)
  • "If You Love Somebody (Set Them Free)" (The Dream of the Blue Turtles)
  • "After The Rain Has Fallen" (Brand New Day)
  • "We'll Be Together" (Nothing Like the Sun)
  • "Perfect Love...Gone Wrong" (Brand New Day)
  • "Seven Days" (Ten Summoner's Tales)
  • "Fill Her Up" (Brand New Day)
  • "Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic" (Ghost in the Machine)
  • "Ghost Story" (Brand New Day)
  • "Moon Over Bourbon Street" (The Dream of the Blue Turtles)
  • "Englishman In New York" (Nothing Like the Sun)
  • "Brand New Day" (Brand New Day)
  • "Tomorrow We'll See" (Brand New Day)
  • "Desert Rose" (Brand New Day)
  • "Every Breath You Take" (Synchronicity)
  • "Lithium Sunset" (Mercury Falling)
  • "Message In A Bottle" (Regatta de Blanc)
  • "Fragile" (Nothing Like the Sun)
