A St(r)ing of hits
Sting, either solo or with The Police, has had far too many hits to list here. Yet there are some that are impossible not to mention. Gaining fame in the 70s with The Police, their first major hit was ‘Roxanne’ taken from their debut album 'Outlandos d'Amour’. Success continued the following year with both ‘Message in a Bottle’ and ‘Walking on the Moon’ reaching the number one spot in the UK. Their biggest hit, arguably, was ‘Every Breath You Take’; often mistaken as a love song, in fact, it’s a song about obsession and surveillance. Sting’s solo career has been no less remarkable with ‘Fields of Gold’ and ‘Desert Rose’ gaining worldwide success. What are you waiting for? Get Sting concert tickets today.
