It will truly be a made-for-television moment when Sting hits the stage alongside pop stars Bruno Mars and Rihanna at the Grammy Awards on Sunday night. It's not clear what the motley trio will perform. The collaboration was revealed among the announcements of other Grammy performers on Monday.
There's no orchestra this time, and nary a lute to be found. For the third consecutive year -- possibly a record for him -- Sting has realized that he's at his best when fronting a rock band. The singer announced dates for the 2013 version of the Back to Bass tour he's been on since 2011.
The wind and rain that arrived with Hurricane Sandy earlier this week are now nothing more than a memory, but the hard work of rebuilding has just begun -- and an impressive array of rock stars are banding together to help.
As Sting's star rose in the '80s as a member of the Police and as a solo artist, so did his opportunities on the big screen. He carved out key roles in such films as 'Dune,' 'The Bride,' and 'Brimstone and Treacle,' and in the '90s he was one of the cast of shady characters in the British gangster flick, 'Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels.'
Sting, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Peter Gabriel have added their voices to the growing din of support for jailed Russian punk rockers Pussy Riot, who face seven years in prison if convicted of inciting religious hatred.
‘Roxanne’ almost wasn’t a hit for the Police. In fact, the song wasn’t even a blip on the U.K. charts after its April 1978 release.

Tony Bennett's collaboration with Queen Latifah, 'Who Can I Turn To (When Nobody Needs Me),' bested Sting's 'Moon Over Bourbon Street' for the 2012 Grammy for Best Instrumental Arrangement Accompanying Vocalist(s).
When we picture Sting, we don't typically picture a fully bearded man wearing a fitted dark suit and one of those old-fashioned stringy bow ties. Thinking back to his Police days, that's the last thing
