Special about this show: the 2 bellydancers that normally would be allowed on stage by Sting weren't allowed onstage by security and instead over 20 women got onstage.  ...  Sting didn't look that happy though ,;-).  Angie and Sue, next time better!

And here a review by Heather:

HI All, I went to the Philly show last night and I have to say out of the three times I have seen the Brand New Day tour I thought this was the best. Sting seemed fresh and really "on". Jill Scott was amazing. She has an great voice and a wonderful stage presence. I think I was sitting smack dab in the middle of her relatives b/c we were one bunch of jamming people. Back to the man, During Desert Rose he brought up about 20 people to belly dance for him. I hope somebody from the list made it up there (Jen??). Another girl lost her shoe and Sting brought her up on stage and put in back on her Cinderella style. Oh God I am soooo jealous. Katie Couric would have been proud, he even took his shirt off. Anyhew it was a really great concert.
