Does Sting get stage fright? ET goes backstage before his concert opener in Vancouver to get the answer!

The singer admits that his feelings of excitement are mixed with "a little anxiety."

"This is a big deal for me," he adds. "It's a huge responsibility. At the same time, I'm thrilled - like a kid with a new train set... it's a mixed bag of emotions."

"I think it's important to have a little bit of nerve," he says. "Once I'm on stage, I'm not nervous. But just before you go on, you get that little tingling. I take what I do seriously; I don't take it for granted."

The night perfectly kicked-off his Symphonicity Tour, with the singer performing his most celebrated songs with the Royal Philharmonic.

Outside the graffiti-scrawled white walls of Abbey Road studios, Japanese tourists are photographing their friends in Beatles poses on the world's most famous pedestrian crossing. Inside is a maze of studios. The largest is Studio One, where there is a 45-piece orchestra - young men and women clad mainly in jeans and shirts - as well as a guitarist, percussionist and blonde female vocalist. They are being put through their paces by Steven Mercurio, a wiry, energetic conductor. Tucked behind him, sitting straight-backed on a stool and wordlessly nodding to the opening bars of "Field of Gold", is Sting...
