"Part of me thinks that happiness is a bovine concept. Cows are happy, you know? On the other hand, it would be churlish of me to have even one complaint. I have had an amazing fucking life. If I'm not happy, who is?"

Over the years, a lot has been thrown at Sting - his tantric sex ideas, saving the Amazon forests and his balmy wedding day - so much so that he's almost as disliked as Bono. Yet on stage he comes across as the most charming and likeable person you could meet. And, you really would like to take him home and have a good chin-wag. Stunningly handsome and in good fettle, he rips through a well thought out set of Police and solo material then bows as Paul Simon makes his entrance. An entrance worthy of rock royalty he, like Sting, doesn't disappoint with his repertoire of old and new...
Paul Simon and Sting may sound like a somewhat unlikely pairing - 73 and 63 respectively, they're from opposite sides of the Atlantic, and found fame in different decades with different genres. But more than 40 years on, their musical ideas seem to be easy bedfellows, and sharing their bands and songs as part of their On Stage Together tour brought many wide smiles to Vector Arena last night. As the two stars took to the instrument-laden stage (including three drum kits), there was an enthusiastic curiosity in the crowd, and they were rewarded with the pair sharing the stage for more than a third of the set, duetting, adding solos, and generally having a ball...
Sting has donated a limited-edition cashmere cap, designed and produced by Greg Chait of The Elder Statesman for Sting & Paul Simon’s "On Stage Together" tour, to benefit St. Mungo's Broadway's Wooly Hat Day auction. This American-made hat is crafted from plush cashmere in a dark melange grey with a hand embossed leather patch featuring Sting & Paul Simon's signatures. Sting has hand-signed the hat’s tag as well as the embossed leather patch...
On the end of one line is Paul Simon, somewhere in New England. On the other is Sting, somewhere in New York. They would be rehearsing together for their joint tour which hits Auckland tomorrow night and New Plymouth on Saturday, but for the fact that the former bassist frontman of The Police has to see off the final shows of his Broadway show The Last Ship - based on the shipbuilding industry of his hometown, Newcastle - before it closes, having been less than a runaway success. Ah well, it happens to the best of them - Simon's 1997 Broadway show The Capeman lost millions. But before Sting headed into theatre land, the pair had been on tour together in the United States, with reviews suggesting the seemingly incongruous partnership worked a treat, with individual sets and shared numbers, which have seen Sting in the Art Garfunkel role on some of Simon's biggest songs...

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...
