Sting Celebrates 60th Birthday and 25 Years As Solo Artist

 

English musician Sting celebrated his 60th birthday with a star-studded show at the Beacon Theater in New York on Saturday. The former front man for British rock band The Police also celebrated his 25th anniversary as a solo artist.

American rock and roll icon Bruce Springsteen staged a three-song performance, singing ‘Hung My Head’, ‘Fields of Gold’ and ‘Can’t Stand Losing You’ in a duet with Sting. Lady Gaga, Billy Joel and Stevie Wonder were just some of the other stars who were at Sting’s birthday bash. Later in the night all performing guest artists performed ‘Every Breath You Take’, one of The Police’s biggest hits written by Sting.

Born Gordon Sumner in Gordon Matthew Sumner in Wallsend, England, Sting is a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

“Hopefully the next 25 years will be the same if I have it,” the British musician said of his musical success. “I couldn’t live without music. I’d rather play music or die.”
