Last Night: The Police at Oakland Coliseum

The Police

Oakland Coliseum

Better than: Sting’s solo material; most new rock bands.

It was totally worth the wait. Twenty-four years since the Police last played the Bay Area (that would be 1983’s Synchronicity tour), the onetime kings of post-new wave, sorta punky-with-reggae-influences pop returned to the Oakland Coliseum, to the delight of 46,500 folks, many of them between 40-45, or old enough to have caught them the first time.
