Sting showcases versatility, depth and enduring rock power at ACL Live...

Every touring artist panders to the city he’s performing in, but Sting seemed genuine when he called Austin “the hippest town in America” at the top of his set at ACL Live on Sunday. “I owe a lot to Austin,” he said, explaining that an Austin station “LBJ” (presumably KLBJ) was the first radio outlet in America to play the Police’s single “Roxanne” in 1979. Shortly after, he said, he played his first Austin gig, at the Armadillo World Headquarters...

Sting eschews politics to provide great entertainment at The Show...

It’s amazing how many Sting songs from the Ronald Reagan ’80s work well in today’s Donald Trump era. In “Spirits in the Material World,” the 1981 Police song famous for its line, “There are no political solutions,” Sting sings, “Our so-called leaders speak / With words they try to jail you.” In “An Englishman in New York,” the 1987 Sting hit with the chorus, “I’m an alien/ I’m a legal alien,” Sting sings, “Takes more than combat gear to make a man/ Takes more than a license for a gun.”
