Get ready for Sting, Ukraine!
The British rockstar will bring his show @Sting: My Songs to Kyiv in October as part of his European tour.
Born in 1951 in Newcastle, England, Sting attended a Catholic school growing up. A son of a milkman, he quickly found his love for music by playing the bass guitar.
He first became famous as part of the band The Police, but Sting also found success on his own. His first solo album The Dream of the Blue Turtles went platinum. His subsequent albums went to the top of the charts worldwide. Sting’s journey is one of experimentation, performing songs that range from classic rock to jazz.
Sting and The Police reunited for some gigs, though it’s no secret that there were conflicts between members. At the same time, it is rumoured that Sting earns $2 000 every day in royalties from a particular song he played back in The Police days. If you think you know the song, let us know down in the comments!
As part of his Ukrainian show, Sting will perform his major hits, which are staples at any of his concerts. We expect he will perform not only “Englishman in New York” but also popular hits such as “Roxanne” and “Fields of Gold”. Each concert of Sting’s sells out way in advance, so make sure to grab your tickets ASAP — maybe What’s On Kyiv will even have some to give away!
