    Default THE POLICE and VAN HALEN

    I went to see The Police yesterday (October 2nd) in Turin, here in Italy, great show, but during a song (I don't remeber which one) the light screen and the big screen spotted the eddie van halen stripes pattern in different colour combination (green and black, yellow and black blues and white....
    strange but true....

    That was during Synchronicity Two. They ran some animated graphics on the video screen depicting the blue, yellow and red stripes that were on the cover of the Synchronicity album.

    Nothing to do with Ed's stripes, though others have commented on the same thing. Easy mistake to make.

    No the guy above you is right. I saw them here in CT a few months back and it was exactly like the frankie stripes. I know what the stripes on the Synchronicity album look like and what he is talkin about isn't them. I thought the same thing when I saw them. Even commented on it in the Police thread.

    The Police and Van Halen; my two favourite bands by quite some considerable margin - I judge all other bands by their respective benchmarks. Saw Stewart, Andy and Sting in Birmingham last month - they were fucking awesome, going again to The Millennium Stadium, Cardiff in a couple of weeks!

    If you can find a clip on youtube of Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic I believe it was during that song that the stripes appeared.

    OMG. Is that it? Look, I'm a reasonable person, and any reasonable person should know that isn't the same as Ed's striping. Those stripes are moving and they aren't red white and black.

    Ed does not have the patent or the copyright on multiple striping on a stage show.

    Ah, I see what you're saying now. Completely different than what I was referring to. My bad.

    Funny...I don't remember seeing those at the St Louis show.

    BTW--for the above poster looking for a show time, the Police took the stage at 8:45 sharp on the first leg.
