Sting at the Piazza San Marco

We were wandering around Piazza San Marco last night and Sting was singing, sound checking, one imagines, before his gig later in the evening. We got quite close and hung around for a while until he waved farewell to the growing crowd. No zoom lens in my bag at the time but the middle photo below has Sting playing guitar with his back to the fans.

St Mark’s Square really is a spectacular, open-air venue for any performance and the acoustics were superb, even if one is not that keen on Sting! Kate, who saw him a couple of years ago, when The Police reformed, was bopping along quite happily. Sarah just kept saying, “who is Sting”?
