Forget the 16 Grammy Awards and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame credentials. How many 61-year-old men can still rock skinny jeans? He's still got it. Sting’s vocals still sound crystalline, his musical chops are uncanny and his catalog is the unabridged manifesto for Rock Theory 101. He's the original hipster - and the flattery is well-earned. For his globe-trotting ''Back To Bass'' tour that hit Red Rocks Amphitheatre on Wednesday night, Sting stripped-down the production value and offered up a no frills, no gimmicks approach show. For the opener ''If I Ever Lose My Faith,'' Sting strolled out on stage with his bass in hand like he was doing a simple sound check. No operatic stage effects, no pyrotechnics, no fluff. It was a refreshing diversion from the overwrought stage designs that most large acts rely on for theatric spunk...
The only question needing an answer heading into Sting’s Victoria debut on Friday night: Which version of the rock legend would show up? The fiery Brit whose first band, the Police, produced an incredible number of hits over a six-year period? Or the easy-listening yoga practitioner whose last substantial hit was a decade ago? Turns out he was a little bit of both at Save-on-Foods Memorial Centre. Sting, 61, delivered a 21-song, two-hour set split evenly between Police hits and solo offerings. Not every song from both sides of his personality worked, but there was a uniqueness to many of the left-field choices that bookended his staple singles...

David Sancious has played with everyone from Bruce Springsteen to Santana, Seal and Bryan Ferry. Nine weeks of world travel started Tuesday morning for keyboardist David Sancious, who won't return to his home in Woodstock, New York, until the second week of August. Not that the 59-year-old is complaining. "When we go out on tour with Sting, it's as nice as it could be," Sancious said Monday, prior to departing for Kelowna and the start of Sting's Back to Bass Tour. "We fly in a private plane, most of the time, and with [an instrument] technician at our beck and call. But as high as it has gotten for me, I don't lose touch with the basics of what it means to be a musician..."
