Police tickets on sale this morning

February 24th, 2007 · No Comments

Tickets for The Police concert in Seattle on Wednesday June 6 go on sale to the general public this morning at 9 am, according to Ticketmaster. I won’t be going to the concert and I’ve never owned a Police album. Yet I find myself feeling some nostalgia for this band whose music brings me immediately back to middle school, adolescence, my early sexuality and first glimpses of music videos.

Everything comes around again. In particular I remember one of my classmates in eighth grade bringing the liner notes Synchronicity to our class on Homer’s Odyssey, pointing out to the teacher that the lyrics to “Wrapped Around Your Finger” referred to “Scylla and Charybdis“, characters we recognized from Odysseus’ journey. Around the time The Police announced their reunion tour, my daughters and I were finishing a history book, a book that contained the story of Cyclops as an excerpt from Homer’s tale.
