New items?
It sure is a great app! My suggestion is to use it for new items also. Latest items are from 2011 and it would be great to see more news, vids, music of 2012 also.
Sting might be the best looking male in his age group, according to much of the female portion of his loyal audience Tuesday night. Happily, judging from a beautifully paced and immaculately performed show kicking off the Artpark summer concert season, he doesn't need to rely on that fact. His occasional shimmies might draw screams from some of his fans, but it is clearly the prowess of his songwriting and the high level of musicianship evidenced by his band that speaks the loudest. Fronting a smaller ensemble than he has often since the breakup of the Police - longtime guitarist Dominic Miller, drummer extraordinaire Vinnie Colaiuta, former E Street keyboardist David Sancious, violinist David Tickell, and backing vocalist Jo Lawry - Sting took us on a tour through his impressive catalog of songs...

Sting's Summer 2012 Tour made a stop in Atlantic City, NJ this past weekend. Metro New York wrote, ''Just one song into the set and it was more than clear why Sting is a music legend who is still selling out shows across the world.''

A younger generation might know Sting as the British rocker behind Police hits like 'Roxanne' and the man behind vaguely-remembered '90s singles like 'Desert Rose'. And indeed, it was an older crowd that packed the house at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City, New Jersey Saturday night as part of his summer-long tour. But just one song into his set, and it was more than clear why Sting is a music legend who is still selling out shows across the world and remains worthy of respect and awe by fans of all ages. At age 60, he's still got it. Rumored by his die-hard fans to be his best band yet, Sting was backed by a multi-talented group of musicians, including insanely gifted violinist Peter Tickell who, dare we say, stole the show at times. There was no opening act, just a two-hour set played entirely by Sting and his band, and it didn't take long to see that it wouldn't have been easy, if not impossible, to properly set the stage for the music icon anyway...
In the past decade or so, Sting has turned his songs inside out. We've heard the symphonic versions. The lute versions. The electro-enhanced 'Don't Stand So Close to Me' version. So what, at halfway to 61 years of age and nearly 35 years into a career, is left to do? Why, play the songs in their basic, original forms, of course. That's exactly what the still-muscular, still intelligently sexy Sting is doing on his ''Back to Bass'' tour, a two-hour historical romp through his career that will have many grousing about the lack of huge hits (thankfully, even he has realized that the formless 'Roxanne' is overplayed and overrated and axed it from the show) and longtime fans perking up at the appearance of 'Sacred Love' and 'The Hounds of Winter'...
