"I can't imagine a more conservative music than rock 'n' roll. It's tyranny in the backbeat. It's 4/4 time. It's the same three chords 'round and 'round. It's almost like a fundamentalist religion. Stravinsky is more rebellious than rock 'n' roll by far. Rock 'n' roll has become like a dead art."

An hour into Sting's show at American Airlines Center on Sunday, he was enjoying complete command over a healthy crowd during a jammy rendition of "Roxanne." "I must have sang that song about a million times in my life," the 63-year-old legend told the audience, mid-tune. "But every time, I find something different… something that keeps it interesting." The same can be said of Sting's concerts in general. He's such a seasoned and skilled live performer that every experience feels special - even when it's part of a corporate-sponsored event tied to a college football game. The headliner kept the crowd standing and participating during the second night of AT&T's Playoff Playlist Live! series. He delved relatively deeply into the soul-soothing global styles of his days fronting the Police...

Singer Sting is "a huge presence" in the Broadway musical he wrote and now appears in, according to one review. The ex-Police frontman is "electrifying in his two big solos" and has had a "galvanising impact" on the cast of The Last Ship, Variety's critic wrote. "Sting seems very much in his element," said USA Today's reviewer, praising the "blazing charisma" he gives his role. The 63-year-old is playing shipyard foreman Jackie White in his self-penned musical until 24 January. Previously lacklustre ticket sales have seen a boost since the singer confirmed he was joining the show for a limited period. According to the New York Times, "weekly takings have gone up by a couple hundred thousand dollars" since his first performance on 9 December. Despite this, its reviewer continued, "Sting's presence doesn't alter the chemistry of the show in any significant way"...
