Symphonicity tour with the Royal Philharmonic Concert OrchestraInterview with Orchestra Percussionist Kevin EarleyThe English star of Tuscany was recently in town and the buzz of excitement in Florence was tangible. Teatro Verdi, covered in posters of the sultry visage of Sting, advertised his one date in Florence on 25th October as part of his current world tour, with an entire orchestra. I went along to the sound check, to see the man in action, and to chat to the Orchestra Percussionist, and personal friend, Kevin Earley.Armed with a guest pass, and slipping in the side door of the theSymphonicity tour with the Royal Philharmonic Concert OrchestraInterview with Orchestra Percussionist Kevin EarleyThe English star of Tuscany was recently in town and the buzz of excitement in Florence was tangible. Teatro Verdi, covered in posters of the sultry visage of Sting, advertised his one date in Florence on 25th October as part of his current world tour, with an entire orchestra. I went along to the sound check, to see the man in action, and to chat to the Orchestra Percussionist, and personal friend, Kevin Earley.Armed with a guest pass, and slipping in the side door of the theatre, I enter the beautiful auditorium and take a seat. Sting’s calm voice fills the theatre as he breaks towards the end of Sister Moon “How can I make it a little more pointy?” For a second it seems he is asking me, the only person sitting in front of him, and I shift slightly in my seat…but the reassuring and faceless voice of Howard the sound guy booms some suggestions at the stage crew.Sound check is a smooth 20 minutes, sampling only a few tracks including When we Dance and Faith and little needs adjusting. Up on stage, in coat and scarf, and with harmonica in hand, Sting is totally relaxed, resting on his tambourine stand. The 45-strong orchestra behind him, which Sting calls ‘the biggest band I’ve ever had’ also appear very much at ease; there are jests, giggles and dancing, but the notes are being hit. It’s like watching a group of friends jamming together, but effortlessly producing a totally gorgeous and perfect sound. They are clearly all enjoying themselves. As an event planner, I can’t help but think of the logistics involved with touring 4 crew sleeper buses, 9 articulated trucks for equipment, 2 buses for the orchestra (although they mostly fly) and Sting’s private jet!“We’re well looked after on this tour”, admits Kevin as we cross the road to Ristorante Il Teatro in front of the theatre. “We normally have a catering company on board but tonight in Florence we have this place at our disposal” and he opens the door. In a matter of minutes the entire restaurant is overcome by over 60 crew and musicians, hungry and ready to stage one of the most awaited gigs of the year in Florence. Sting enters, relaxed and happy as he glides through a room full of talent and passion. The waitresses are on an electric charge of energy as they dart between tables and playfully use the band technicians’ walkie talkies to throw orders between staff and kitchen. Outside too is a flurry of activity as eager fans arrive to snap shots of the posters. Little do they know that right behind them, only a few metres away, the man himself is looking out at them through the window while finishing his pre-show snack!
