Composer, singer-songwriter, actor, author, and activist Sting was born in Newcastle, England before
moving to London in 1977 to form The Police with Stewart Copeland and Andy Summers. The band
released five studio albums, earned six GRAMMY Awards® and two Brits, and was inducted into The
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2003.
As one of the world’s most distinctive solo artists, Sting has received an additional 11 GRAMMY
Awards®, two Brits, a Golden Globe, an Emmy, four Oscar nominations (including 2017’s nomination for
“The Empty Chair” from JIM: THE JAMES FOLEY STORY), a TONY nomination, Billboard Magazine’s
Century Award, and MusiCares 2004 Person of the Year. In 2003, he was made a Commander of the
Order of the British Empire (CBE) by Queen Elizabeth II for his myriad of contributions to music. Also a
member of the Songwriters Hall of Fame, he has received the Kennedy Center Honors, The American
Music Award of Merit and The Polar Music Prize. Sting has been awarded Honorary Doctorates of Music
by the University of Northumbria (1992), Berklee College of Music (1994), University of Newcastle upon
Tyne (2006) and Brown University at its 250th Commencement ceremony (2018).
Throughout his illustrious career, Sting has sold close to 100 million albums from his combined work
with The Police and as a solo artist.
Following his critically-acclaimed album, 57th & 9th, his first rock/pop collection in over a decade, Sting
and reggae icon, Shaggy released a collaborative, island-influenced album, entitled 44/876, drawing
from the many surprising connections at the heart of their music. With its title referencing their home
country codes, 44/876 first and foremost honors the duo’s mutual love for Jamaica: Shaggy’s homeland,
and the place where Sting penned such classics as The Police’s “Every Breath You Take.” Their charttopping
release debuted at #1 in Germany and Top 10 in the UK. It spent over 20 weeks atop Billboard’s
Reggae Album chart in the US, earned Gold certifications in Poland and France and received the
GRAMMY Award® for Best Reggae Album.
Earlier this year, Sting was honoured at the BMI Pop Awards for his enduring hit single “Every Breath
You Take,” which has become the Most Performed Song, with 15 million radio plays, from BMI’s catalog
of over 14 million musical works.
On May 24, a new album entitled My Songs, featuring contemporary interpretations of his most
celebrated hits, was released and followed by a world tour of the same name. Sting’s ‘My Songs’ World
Tour is a rollicking, dynamic show featuring his most beloved songs spanning the 17-time GRAMMY
Award® winner’s prolific career with The Police and as a solo artist.
The special edition release of Sting’s critically-acclaimed album, My Songs will be released November 8
and includes a bonus CD with new live recordings from the My Songs World Tour. At the same time, a
digital album titled My Songs: Live containing 11 new live recordings also captured along the My Songs
World Tour will be released on November 8.
Next year, Sting will headline a Las Vegas residency, “My Songs,” set to open at The Colosseum at
Caesars Palace Friday, May 22, 2020. The show will present a compendium of Sting’s songs with
dynamic, visual references to some of his most iconic videos and inspirations.
He has appeared in more than 15 films, executive produced the critically acclaimed A Guide to
Recognizing Your Saints, and in 1989 starred in The Threepenny Opera on Broadway. His most recent
theatre project is the TONY-nominated musical The Last Ship, inspired by his memories of the
shipbuilding community of Wallsend in the North East of England where he was born and raised. The
show, with music and lyrics by Sting, ran on Broadway in 2014/2015 and completed a criticallyacclaimed
UK regional theatre tour which ran from March-July 2018. Thereafter, Sting starred as
shipyard foreman Jackie White in the Toronto-based production of The Last Ship at the Princess of
Wales Theatre. He will reprise the role for productions in Los Angeles at the Ahmanson Theatre (January
14 – February 16, 2020), San Francisco at the SHN Golden Gate Theatre (February 20 – March 22, 2020),
Washington, D.C at the National Theatre (March 27-April 5), St. Paul, MN at the Ordway Center (April 8-
19), and in Detroit, MI at the Detroit Opera House (April 22-26). Additional information on The Last Ship
International Tour can be found at thelastshipmusical.co.uk.
Sting’s support for human rights organizations such as the Rainforest Fund, Amnesty International, and
Live Aid mirrors his art in its universal outreach. Along with wife Trudie Styler, Sting founded the
Rainforest Fund in 1989 to protect both the world’s rainforests and the indigenous people living
there. Together they have held 18 benefit concerts to raise funds and awareness for our planet’s
endangered resources, with the next concert taking place on December 9 at the iconic Beacon Theatre
in New York City. Since its inception, the Rainforest Fund has expanded to a network of interconnected
organizations working in more than 20 countries over three continents.
