He brought his band: a high class guitarist, named Dominic Miller, Vinnie Colaiuta (on backing vocal), Peter (on violin), Jo Lawry (on drum) and David Sancious (on keyboard).

So here's my stories...
i've heard the news that Sting would be performing in Jakarta since a couple months ago. I've been really anxious if i couldn't buy the concert ticket because i knew that the ticket price would be that really expensive. On November, i realized that my money wasn't enough to by the ticket then I tried to forget about the concert. But then.. I've been dreaming of watching Sting's concert TWICE. So i started looking for people who sell the ticket with more affordable price.

14th December 11pm,  during me and my friends from college were preparing about the play competition, i got a message from my high school friend, Inan. he told me that he got 4 Sting's ticket and he sold with affordable price. OH MY GOODNESS. 

And yeah on 15th december, we went to Sting's concert,baby!!! 
traffic jam totally sucks. Inan and i have arrived lilte bit late.
ini yang terjadi...
Inan: "buset kok yang nonton pada tua semua sih, Tus?"
gue: "lah emang kenapa? Sting kan musisi tua"
Inan: "aduh, yaampun selera lo.." 

But thanks a lot to this good friend of mine, Inan who sold the cheap ticket  for me, picked me up, accompanied me for watching this marvelous concert, and drop me off home.  Even he only knows 2 songs. Heheheh.

A weird moment happened when Inan and I to find our seats and the audiences were mostly old people...
Inan and I: " excuse me"
An old woman to her friends: "look at these teenagers. what a cute, attending Sting concert together."
me: we're good friends , ma'am.

It's my first time watching a concert not in festival, so i didnt really feel the euphoria. On our way down after the concert was over, i met these cool musicians.. Piyu Padi and Vincent Rompies (again). Well, i could say... sambil berenang, dua, tiga pulau terlampaui.
