Sting shows Nashville audience why he's still a standout...

Rock great Sting made an overdue return to Music City on Tuesday, as his U.S. tour stopped at Municipal Auditorium - a venue he played 35 years ago with The Police. But even though he's been at it for decades, the British-born rocker goes above and beyond in his live show. Here's why...

Sting Is a Star Who Doesn't Mind If Everyone Else Shines Too...

Before the excellent second opening act (The Last Bandoleros), before even the first very good opening act (his son, Joe Sumner), Sting was the very first person to take the stage of the Smart Financial Center Thursday night. Part warmup, part introduction to the night, he grabbed his acoustic guitar, talked a little about his previous trips to Houston and played a lovely version of “Heading South on the Great North Road.” It was a delight and really set the tone for the rest of the evening, which - musically at least - was great front to back, top to bottom.

Sting came to play in New Orleans...

In releasing "57th and 9th," all those public relations people and music reporters kept talking to Sting about how this was his first rock album in years. But to Sting, the former frontman of influential British export The Police, it didn't exactly feel that way. "I play rock and roll every night, and it's been part of my DNA since I was 7 years old," he laughed in an interview just weeks ago. "That puzzles me a little bit."

The Last Bandoleros

Member Exclusive: Last Bandoleros are bringing their exceptional musicianship and unbridled energy to the #57thAnd9thTour. I say they're like Los Lobos meet The Monkees but get to the show early and judge for yourself.

Sting proved he's still making relevant music (and is still a sex symbol) at Dallas concert...

Now that he's turned 65, Sting was sounding a bit nostalgic Monday night after he played "Message in a Bottle," perhaps his greatest song with The Police. "Forty years ago when I wrote this, only a dog was listening - and he was barely wagging his tail," he told about 5,000 fans at Verizon Theatre. "Forty years later, everyone in Dallas is singing all the words."
