'I'd like people to recognize a certain progress being made. My desire is to get better. To be a better singer, be a better songwriter, a better musician, arranger, producer. Person, even. That's a grand ambition but it's nonetheless the intention, and each record should reflect this progress.'

From singing to 13,000 people in Dubai to a night playing in a North East school hall - superstar Sting said he was, in fact, more nervous to perform to a home crowd. The multi-Grammy award-winning singer arrived in South Shields on Saturday night from the Middle East to perform songs from his musical The Last Ship, as well as old favourites from his years in The Police. Talking frankly about his childhood growing up near the River Tyne in Wallsend and the impact the region has had on his music, he was joined on stage by former South Shields MP David Miliband, who was hosting the event as part of his annual lecture series...
Global chart-topper Sting proved a smash hit as he took centre stage in South Shields tonight. The multi-million selling artist was this year’s star attraction for the annual South Shields Lecture on Saturday, organised by former town MP David Miliband. The hugely popular performer, fresh from a lead role in his own play on Broadway, jetted in from Dubai to add his name to the list of national figures who have given the annual address. The former Police frontman was invited to give the talk at Harton Technology College by the former Foreign Secretary, himself now an Englishman in New York after swapping life as a politician for a leading charity role in the Big Apple...
Sting can't be accused of treading water in his comfort zone. The last few weeks have seen the man born Gordon Sumner continue a 14-month joint headline tour alongside fellow rock legend Paul Simon - a fascinating odd couple defined by duets and performing each others' songs - and star on Broadway in his own poorly received musical The Last Ship, which sunk and closed early in a sea of debt. Dubai then was a chance for Sting to step back into his old hit-shaped boots, relax, and enjoy the songwriting riches of the legacy he has carved over close to four decades...
Based on the acclaimed memoir One Train Later by rock guitarist Andy Summers, Can’t Stand Losing You follows Summers’ journey from his early days in psychedelic ‘60s music scene, when he played with The Animals, to chance encounters with drummer Stewart Copeland and bassist Sting, which led to the formation of a punk trio, The Police.

During the band’s phenomenal rise and its dissolution at the height of their popularity in the mid-80s, Summers captured history with his candid photographs.

Utilizing rare archival footage and insights from the guitarist’s side of the stage, Can’t Stand Losing You brings together past and present as the band members reunite, two decades later, for a global reunion tour in 2007...

Join the Old Vic Theatre on Sunday 19 April for a one-night-only Gala Celebration to honour Kevin Spacey and recognise his extraordinary 11 years as Artistic Director. This spectacular event, hosted by Hugh Bonneville, will bring together a host of Spacey’s theatrical friends and colleagues, including musical performances from Annie Lennox and Sting.
It was a night of miracle and wonder as two of the world's top artists shared a stage under the stars in a concert that often soared to magical levels. A sell-out audience paid up to $500 a ticket to see Paul Simon and Sting perform their - and each others - enduring songs at Sir James Mitchell Park. Early in the set the mutual respect between the pair was obvious as they launched into two of their timeless classics, sharing lyrics and bouncing off each other during Simon's Boy In The Bubble and Sting’s moving Fields of Gold. But it was their interpretations of each other’s songs that made the night so memorable, first with Simon's take on Fragile, followed by Sting (aka an Englishman in South Perth) returning the favour on America. Hearing two of the most iconic voices of the past half century reimagining each other's work made for a inspired partnership...
Evoking memories of the clip for Paul Simon's You Can Call Me Al, where Chevy Chase towered over the singer and mimed the lyrics to his song, Sting is a full head taller than Simon as they stroll on to the Hope Estate stage. But that's where the comparison ends. No one can steal Simon's thunder, not even when he scripts it. The man, small of stature and of few words, pens and delivers lyrics with a quiet earnestness that commands attention. In Simon and Garfunkel, the haunting beauty of the harmonies and the considered accompanying musicianship transformed simple, heartfelt folk songs into a soundtrack for many a fan's life. This was the case for Sting, who told the crowd: "I'm sure I'm not the only one to have Paul Simon as a soundtrack to their life."
You can punch out all sorts of superlatives to describe the Paul Simon and Sting live concert experience. But one word stands out: wow. The duo, set to play their last Australian shows on the South Perth foreshore on Saturday and Sunday night, played to about 13,000 fans at Sydney’s Qantas Arena on Friday night. And unless Friday night was an anomaly (which I’m almost positive it wasn’t) everyone who is going to the Perth concerts is in for a treat...
