Amazing Jumps : The Police


The Police
Staples Center
Los Angeles, CA
June 20, 2007

In the last few years we have been privileged to see a lot of classic rock bands reunite – Van Halen, Jane’s Addiction, Motley Crue, Led Zeppelin, etc. I was pretty stoked to hear that The Police were finally really going to do it. There had been a lot of bad blood and a lot of solo tours standing between the three members, not to mention a lot of questions. Can they still do it, are they too old, will they rock like they used to? Well, this photo is the living proof – The Police pretty much picked up where they left off. The band played with as much youthful fury as they could – still changing drum kits, still using synthesizers with their feet and still jumping high in the sky with musical inspiration beneath their feet.

I shot this photo just as the band hit the final notes of Message In A Bottle…Sting has got some air.

Photographed up against the stage with my Canon 5D and a Canon 24mm-70mm 2.8 lens

  1. Nice to see a concert photo the way it’s supposed to be. UP CLOSE!!! 🙂

  2. I’d love to use both the small live photo with watermark and the photo of the yellow pass on this page of the PoliceWiki, if that’s possible…
