I stride manfully to my drums. Andy has started the opening guitar riff to MESSAGE IN A BOTTLE and the crowd is going nuts. Problem is, I missed hearing him start. Is he on the first time around or the second? I look over at Sting and he’s not much help, his cue is me – and I’m lost. Never mind. “Crack!” on the snare and I’m in, so Sting starts singing. Problem is, he heard my crack as two in the bar, but it was actually four – so we are half a bar out of sync with each other. Andy is in Idaho...

That's Stewart Copeland describing their second show of The Police Reunion Tour. Too bad they won't be playing in the Philippines.

That goes to show that even when everything goes wrong, things can be fun as long as everyone enjoys themselves.
