Tue, March 21, 2017, 7:00 PM – 10:00 PM PDT
Gordon Matthew Thomas Sumner, otherwise known as Sting has been a staple name in music since The Police hit the big time in the late 70s. Now touring his own popular solo work along with a handful of The Police's hit singles, audiences continue to flock to see the iconic singer perform.
Often accompanied by an orchestra, a staple sound for his solo work. The arrangement adds a sense of grandeur and luxury to the affair and as Sumner stands centre you can see he still has a great deal of passion for performing. It is also clear that he enjoys delighting his audiences with Police classics such as 'Driven To Tears' and 'Wrapped Around Your Finger' as he plays them with such jovial enthusiasm as the audience proudly sing back these timeless tracks.
His own brand of new wave tracks are considered equally classic as the poignant 'Fields Of Gold' sounds wonderful as Sting sings in a vocal that appears not to have aged. The encore of 'Every Breath You Take' perhaps gets the biggest cheer of the night as this tender mega-hit is sung note perfect by both performer and audience. As he takes a final bow and thanks his magnificent backing band, the audience appear thankful Sting isn't a star who shun the limelight in older age.
