In Moscow Sting performed his most popular songs written over 25 years of his solo career...
British singer Sting once again shocked the Moscow audience with his professionalism. His concert was the only one in the metropolitan sports complex "Olympic", which seats up to 25 thousand spectators and was filled to capacity.
As the musician, dressed in a white shirt with no inscriptions and dark trousers, appeared before the public, he made a real ovation. "Good Evening, Moscow," - in Russian, and said Sting is the native language added that he was glad to return to Russia. And though the last time he came to the capital is not so long ago - last year he sang with the symphony orchestra - his current performance was quite similar to the previous one.
This time the singer/actor has brought a new program, which since the beginning of June shows around the world within Tour "Sting's Summer Tour". Together with his musicians - guitarist Dominic Miller, drummer Vinnie Colaiuta, keyboardist David Sancious, violinist and vocalist Peter Tickell and Jo Lowry - Sting sang the popular songs written over 25 years of his solo career, as well as composition from his time with "The Police".
Few people can make a program and the only hits for nearly two hours to keep viewers in suspense. The musician played twenty-one songs. There were 'Englishman In New York', 'Seven Days', 'Next To You', 'Roxanne', 'Every Breath You Take', 'Fragile' and many others. Of course, Sting was singing live, as a huge impression on the audience made a fiddler Peter Tickell, but all agreed that the sound of the "Olympic", unfortunately, leaves much to be desired.
Following the Moscow Artist July 27 will go to St. Petersburg and then in Latvia and Lithuania, where he completed his tour.
