Sting comes to Tampa


This past Saturday came alive as legendary singer-songwriter-former Police frontman Sting brought his My Songs tour to the Seminole Hard Rock Casino in Tampa, FL. Playing the songs that made him the legend he is along with anecdotes about his childhood and life now, the man born Gordon Sumner proved why he is still on top. His voice is still top notch. One of the big highlights was him talking about wanting to be a cowboy when he was young before launching into “I’m So Happy, I Can’t Stop Crying”, which was covered by Toby Keith. He also talked about finding out that “Roxanne” has become a college drinking game where a shot is taken every time he says Roxanne, warning the audience, “Don’t try this at home, kids”. Seriously, don’t try this at home.  There was a section of the show where he played four songs from his newest album The Bridge, sitting on a stool center stage. Going back to the hits, the audience once again rose to their feet and danced.

Backed by an excellent group of musicians and backup singers, Sting gave them each their time to shine. Ending the evening with a trio of well-loved songs, everyone left happy and dancing.
