Sting swaps bass guitar for orchestral instruments
Sting has put his bass guitar aside for his latest world tour, as he is performing with the London Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra.
The former Police frontman is showcasing orchestral versions of many of his old hits as part of his Symphonicity tour.
His setlist included classics such as Message in a Bottle, Roxanne, Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic and Englishman in New York.
"I've always liked classical music, since I was young, and stolen from it royally," Sting commented.
The musician recently showcased his new project with an intimate gig at EMI's Abbey Road studios in London.
This latest tour is his first global excursion since the recent Police reunion tour, which saw him performing with his old bandmates Stewart Copeland and Andy Summers.
He also issued a new album - If On a Winter's Night - last year.Posted on 3 Jun 2010 17:00 to category : Band / Celebrity News
