Hounbds of Winter Download issues
If you had a problem validating the CD to download the bonus content. Email as referenced below: stingcom - 04.09.12 Got a problem? Anyone experiencing a problem with validating their CD should email tickets@pushsupport.com Thanks Sting.com Took a few days and they got back to me with a link and password to download. It seems they forgot to include the American CD release in the process.

Member, couldn't download-No reply from
I am a Sting.com member and I tried for several days to download "The Hounds of Winter" as was advertised, but I never saw any link to download the song in my user profile page... I wrote to help in "Sting.com", but nobody answered. Did you mean "paid membership" holders not just "members"? Then this should have been clarified before, expressed differently. I wish I could download it, it is a nice gesture towards (general) members. You know what happens when they make a mistake in a shop and they advertise something wrongly... they usually honour the mistake ;) - just saying. Thanks! x

I have a User Profile page and I have also bought the Album, I can't get a place on the User Profile Page to click or the "load CD now" on the other page. I am using my new iMac, and I have Java loaded. I loved your concert in Vancouver, Canada in December 2011!!

Won't Work For Me
Also got the mega box set of 25 YEARS, and the program won't validate.
fletch622 - 04.07.12
UK disc will allow download
Apparently, the North American "Best Of 25 Years" disc does not work to validate. However, Disc 1 of the UK two-disc version of "Best Of 25 Years" was accepted. (on a Mac running OS X 10.6.8) I do not own the US box set as of yet, but judging from a few of the comments, the app does not accept those discs for validation either.

DL Won't Work For Me, Either
I appreciate the offer, but having bought the big box set, nothing works on my mac to allow me to access the song. I watched the whole of the video, but the program simply will not recognize my cd, no matter what I do. Any help?

Last night, Sting and Trudie Styler hosted The Revlon Concert for The Rainforest Fund at Carnegie Hall in New York City. They were joined by Sir Elton John, James Taylor, Meryl Streep, Jennifer Hudson, Bruno Mars, Vince Gill, and many more.

When she and Sting first visited South America's Amazon rainforest in 1988, Trudie Styler remembers flying into thick smoke from a fire raging below. "It was like seeing paradise and hell at the same time," she told a packed Carnegie Hall at last night's Revlon Concert for the Rainforest Fund. The evening's two-hour "Songs from the Silver Screen" event featured performances from Sir Elton John, James Taylor, Jennifer Hudson, Bruno Mars and more. Styler, who co-founded the Rainforest Fund to protect land and human rights for the indigenous there, singled out Chevron as the worst violator in Ecuador, where a court fined the oil giant $18 billion in February...
Elton John, Bruno Mars, Meryl Streep and others have a ball singing songs you wouldn't expect as Channing and Jenna Dewan Tatum torridly tango. Imagine The Wizard of Oz starring Meryl Streep as Dorothy, James Taylor as the Scarecrow, Sting as the Tin Man and Elton John as the Cowardly Lion. Well, thanks to the Rainforest Fund benefit concert, you don't have to anymore. The show's surreal opening number featured that (noncostumed) all-star cast warbling 'If I Only Had a Brain', and it was only the beginning. These annual Carnegie Hall shows organized by Sting and his wife Trudie Styler always are a highlight of the musical year. They usually follow the concept of stars singing songs they've never done before and likely will never do again, thereby providing strong incentive for attendees to part with serious cash for the ultra-pricey tickets...

What a night for the 20 plus year Rainforest Foundation: Trudie Styler produced her biennial all-star fundraiser at Carnegie Hall, probably the best ever with Sting, Elton John, James Taylor, Jennifer Hudson, Roseanne Cash, Esperanza Spaulding, Vince Gill, Bruno Mars, opera great Bryn Terfel, Rita Wilson, Meryl Streep, and Channing Tatum with his gorgeous dancer wife Jenna, and special guest Bill Clinton. They raised millions more for the preservation of the Rainforest and its indigenous people. So many highlights but probably no one will ever forget Elton John singing 'Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend' while Channing Tatum, wearing a vest and no shirt underneath, plus a black bowler, danced around him as if he were in the show, 'Chicago'. It was hilarious. Jennifer Hudson, of course, blew the doors off the building singing 'And I’m Telling You' from 'Dreamgirls'...
Jennifer Hudson and Bruno Mars have been added to the incredible lineup for the upcoming Revlon Concert for the Rainforest Fund! They join an all-star list of performers including Sting, Elton John, James Taylor, Meryl Streep, Vince Gill, Rosanne Cash, and Bryn Terfel at the concert on April 3, 2012, which will be held at the world-renowned Carnegie Hall's Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage, followed by a gala dinner.
