15,000 Witness Sting Concert in Bulgaria...

Nearly 15,000 people witnessed the concert of Sting in Bulgaria's coastal resort of Nessebar on June 12.

The concert was part of Sting's Broken Music international tour, Darik Radio reported.

Sting performed together with Fiction Plane, the band of his eldest son John Sumner. The style of the group resembled the popular in Great Britain Coldplay, Keane and U2 but lacked in originality, said.

The concert is Sting's second performance in Bulgaria since his concert in the National Palace of Culture in Sofia nearly 10 years ago.

Sting performed some of his most memorable hits. He entertained the audience with 'Englishman in New York', 'If I Ever Lose My Faith', 'Fields of Gold', 'Shape of My Heart', 'Roxanne', 'If You Love Somebody Set Them Free' and 'Every Breath You Take'.

Sting left Bulgaria right after the concert.

20,000 Groove with Old Sting Hits in Bulgaria...

About 20,000 people gathered in Nessebar at Bulgaria's seaside despite the crummy weather to see rock legend Sting live Monday night, SNA reporters witnessed.

Sting, who looks amazingly well for his 54 years of age, surprised the audience with a medley of old hits. The rock dinosaur did not include any of his latest songs, but generously compensated the fans with favourites from his time with The Police.

Many Bulgarian singers joined the ranks of the Sting-lovers, along with Ice Skating Champions Albena Denkova and Maxim Staviski. All 20,000 sang their hearts out throughout the two-hour-long Sting fest, going home with quite an adrenaline rush and a sore throat.

Part of the Broken Music tour, the concert was Sting's second in Bulgaria, but probably not his last, for the rocker ended it with a promise. ''Well, see you again,'' Sting said to the roaring crowd before he left the stage.

Warm-up band Fiction Plane, led by Sting's son Joe also managed to move the crowd with a harder version of daddy's style.

Later in June, new wave megastars Depeche Mode are performing in Sofia, and in early July Italian icon Eros Ramazzotti will make a dream come true for Bulgarian fans.

As for the rap scene, 50 Cent and Busta Rhymes are readying to meet the local public for the first time.
