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.
Those hoping to hear Sting perform songs from his upcoming album 'The Last Ship' onstage will have to be pretty lucky. The singer has announced that the only concerts he'll perform in support of the album will be a series of 10 dates at New York City's tiny Public Theater, which will double as a benefit for the venue.
Sting's first album in 10 years will include an unexpected collaboration with Brian Johnson, the lead singer of AC/DC. 'The Last Ship' will hit stores on Sept. 24. As previously reported, the collection is the soundtrack to a theater production of the same name set to debut on Broadway in 2014.
Mickey Sumner, Sting's daughter, has been racking up some great reviews for her role in the new indie movie 'Frances Ha.' The 29-year-old Sumner -- whose mom is Sting's longtime wife, movie producer and actress Trudie Styler -- gets second billing in the film behind star Greta Gerwig, indie movies' latest It Girl.
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.
Jimmy Fallon returned to ‘Saturday Night Live’ last weekend to mock Justin Bieber, comedian Russell Brand and Sting. In a sketch spoofing Michael Buble‘s Christmas duets album — which is currently the No. 1 album in America — Fallon joins the real Buble for a few short songs.
