I was amazed by Sting performing live in concert yesterday in Beirut! Incredible voice singing new and old songs of his repertoire, accompanied by really great great musicians. Camera wasn’t allowed, so I took some pictures with my phone and some videos, hope you will enjoy them!
Sting was born in 1951 in England, joined the Brit group “The Police” in 1977, whose songs are now classics of Pop Music, like Roxanne, Every Breath you take, Don’t stand so close to me, Message in a bottle... He went solo in 1985 and contributed to Music History with “Russians”, “They dance alone”, “fragile”, “Englishman in New York” which was even covered by rap and hip hop artists.The secret of his success? he is very talented but is also a hard worker, has an impeccable lifestyle, he exercises many hours a day and is still married to the same woman after 20 years!An interesting fact: Sting also wrote the huge hit “Money for Nothing (I want my MTV)” with Mark Knopfler for Dire Straits!
