OT: Help in finding The Police reunion vid

This is a long shot, but I'm wondering if anyone can help me find a video of The Police reunion at their induction to the Rock and Roll Hall of fame back in 2003.

While I'm at it, if anyone knows where I can find a vid of Cream's reunion at the Royal Albert Hall a few years back, pass it on as well.

I wouldn't spend any money on that one. It was a terrible performance. Andy Summers couldn't even play his own parts any more. My wife is a huge Police fan, and she turned it off halfway through the first song.

On the other hand, I believe the Cream RAH show is out on an official DVD. I know it was broadcast on PBS a few months back.

Thanks for the headsup, Will. I grabbed it just now on Netflix.

Still, I'd love to see that Police performance at their induction.

lol. I'll take your word for it.

I saw The Police live, by complete chance, while hitch hiking through France back in the spring of 1980. I'd just had my passport and a lot of my traveler's checks stolen, and was at an all-time low. After hanging out near the local police station for a few days, just to see if they could find anything, I finally woke one morning, determined to just hitch to Marseille US embassy, get a new passport, and just get on with things. In my grim state, I ended up on the wrong road, further fueling this feeling like I couldn't do anything right. I thought, fk it, I'm just going to walk until this black cloud disperses. An hour later, I got picked up by a cold-shouldered French woman who made me speak only my broken French to her. Three hours later of driving, she asked if I wanted to buy her spare Police ticket, playing that evening in Toulon. Up until then, I didn't like the band, but that night changed everything. Held in a large outdoor tent right on a beach, with 3,000 others, that remains one of the most awe-inspring concerts I've ever seen.
