Sting and Paul Simon will begin their co-headlining tour next month, and even though the logistics have been worked out, there's still a major question to be resolved. The stars haven't figured out yet which songs they'll perform together.
It’s safe to say that Sting never has to work again if he doesn’t want to. On top of all his income from touring and his incredibly popular back catalog, a new article reveals that he earns $730,000 a year — $2,000 a day — in royalties from only one song, ‘Every Breath You Take.’
As if his achievements at the helm of the Police weren’t hall-of-fame-worthy enough, Sting then had to break out on his own and spend the next few decades achieving just as much popular acclaim as a solo artist. Classic-rock fans may not rate these wildly eclectic solo works on the same level as some of those older rock-and-reg
On Sept. 11, 2001, Sting watched in horror as a series of terrorist attacks unfolded in the U.S. And then, at the urging of his bandmates, he spent the night fulfilling his previously scheduled concert obligations. On Sept. 12, he started work on what would become his seventh studio solo LP, 'Sacred Love.'
When we first heard that AC/DC singer Brian Johnson would be guesting on Sting's new album, we were somewhat dubious. After all, AC/DC's boozy barroom crunch couldn't be further away from Sting's classy jazz-speckled pop.
Sting has never hid his pretensions. In fact, he's gone out of his way to flaunt them, going all the way back to the Police, when he casually referenced Vladimir Nabokov in the band's first Top 10 U.S. hit and then explored Jungian philosophies on the band's biggest-selling album. Things only got worse with his solo career.
