Every Little Thing Sting Does is Magic
We’ve been stung.
And with sweet venom of the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra, it feels, and sounds, oh so good.
“Sting Live in Berlin” just hit Qello Concerts. Think: Sting’s greatest hits performed with a symphony orchestra.
And what perfect timing.
The 65-year-old, 16-time Grammy Award winner is currently on a world tour in support of his latest album, "57th and 9th."
This concert film is culled from a different world tour, the critically acclaimed, Symphonicity tour. Get it? Interestingly, in this film, we only hear a few songs off The Police’s most successful album, Synchronicity. There, I gave it away. Still, there is no shortage of hits including “Every Little Thing She Does is Magic,” “Roxanne,” ““Fields of Gold,” and more, all rearranged for a symphonic rendition.
The songs and stories are woven together with violin interludes and horns by Branford Marsalis, as Sting moves through his pop classics, a country tune, to undeniably beautiful songs like “Why Should I Cry for You,” “Whenever I Say your Name,” and “Fragile.” He leaves his German audience with an acoustic version of “You will be my Ain True Love.”
Here, and from the reviews of his current tour, the “King of Pain” proves he hasn’t lost a spark. He is still one of the greatest living performers, storytellers, singers, and icons in the world.
Now I know my love for Sting goes onnnnn...
