Since there will be Europe summer touring in 2013 again, please please consider some German dates.

"Tomorrow's rain will wash the stains away, but something in our minds will always stay," Sting sang, compelling the Araneta Coliseum to at least subdued excitement out of respect for the dead.

And even after taking a long sabbatical from his rock persona - choosing to pursue symphonic and new-age projects in his time - at the HKCEC in his return to Hong Kong with his Back to Bass tour, Sting showed that, after all this time, yes... he's still got it. Pulling the expected double duty of singer and bassist, he performed a host of his classic monstrous hits permanently etched in our brains both from his early days with The Police and as a solo artist. Backed by a five-piece band, including a rocking violinist, he kicked off the night with 'If I Ever Lose My Faith In You' and 'Every Little Thing She Does is Magic', followed by an all-hit roster stuffed with tunes that have stood the test of time...
