When asked about why he was teaming up with Peter Gabriel for a tour, Sting stated, “We traded songs, we traded musicians, we sang together. And the take home that people got from that was they loved it when we did things together.”
Gordon Sumner, known to most as Sting was born on October 2, 1951 in North Tyneside, England. As a young child, Sting become “obsessed” with an old Spanish guitar left behind by a friend of his father who moved out of the country. Upon graduation from college, Sting became a teacher at St Paul’s First School in Cramlington. After class, Sting would perform jazz in the evening, playing with locally known groups such as Newcastle Big Band and Last Exit.
In 1977, Sting moved to London, where he, along with Stewart Copeland and Henry Padovani formed The Police. By 1983, The Police had released five UK chart-topping albums and had taken home six Grammy Awards. Following the release of Synchronicity in 1983, which featured the hit classic “Every Breath You Take,” The Police decided they would focus on solo projects moving forward.
In 1985, Sting released his first solo album, The Dream of the Blue Turtles, which featured the hit singles “If You Love Somebody Set Them Free” and “Fortress Around Your Heart.” Less than a year after its release, the album reached triple platinum status. Over the next three decades, Sting has gone on to release a total of 11 solo albums, which feature hits such as “We’ll Be Together,” “All This Time,” and “Desert Rose.” Sting’s most recent album, The Last Ship was released in 2013 and to this day, Sting tickets are highly sought after.
