Sting offers unsurpassed performance at Altos de Chavon...

The second match of Sting with the Dominicans at Altos de Chavon was exceptional and achieved a sellout of the landmark amphitheater.

From 8 to 9:40 pm on Sunday Sting played his major hits, which included some that popularized the band The Police and others of his solo career. 'Englishman In New York', 'When We Dance', 'Every Breath You Take' and 'Roxanne' were some of the songs he played the British singer.

The Grammy award-winning evening concluded with 'Fragile' with his guitar, he thanked in Spanish and blew kisses to all fans.

His three musicians and the showgirl Jo Lawry did a remarkable job with excellent performance.

Before Sting, Pavel Nunez encouraged the audience with a half-hour presentation that began at 7:30 pm. Among the songs he played the songwriter are 'Cradle To My Grandmother', 'Step by Step', People Come, and 'Bethany'.

Remarkable & Amazing
Incredible excellent sound, lightning, voices, moves, performance, as only Sting has us used to. Completely full house. The only con that I can say is that I would like to be at least a couple more hours. Jajaja. Simply Sting. Congrats to Sting and crew for such excellent performance and to all Dominicans and visitors how enjoyed the concert.
