After 16 Grammys and 35 years in music, Sting's still buzzing...

Saturday marked the first South African date of the Sting: Back To Bass worldwide tour. The concert to celebrate 25 years of Gordon Sumner’s solo career was held at Joburg’s Coca-Cola Dome and, surprisingly for a big international act, two dates were booked at the same venue - the 16-time Grammy Award-winning Sting performing again yesterday. Also unusual was the lack of opening acts. The bassist/vocalist made famous by multiplatinum '80s new wave band The Police played an impressively long set (about 19 songs) without a break.

Sting ran away from his home town, Newcastle, to become a megastar, marry Trudie Styler and have six children. And now he's gone back home. The Times' Chrissey Iley joins him for the ride...

On the streets of Newcastle, Sting's home town and mine, the taxi drivers love him. They like him because he doesn’t take himself too seriously. They can joke with him, they say, and reminisce. He's a generous tipper, too. Match that with the multimillionaire whose life revolves between homes in Wiltshire, New York, Tuscany and Malibu.
