Between October 29 and November 13 Sting will become a Vegas act.

Sting is amused he has become a Vegas act. He recently told the Los Angeles Times that when he was still a member of The Police he thought of Vegas as a prison sentence for Frank Sinatra, Dino, the Rat Pack. Then Elvis, Tom Jones, Engelbert Humperdinck.

Sting will perform his show ‘My Songs’ in Vegas. He says he is in “wait and see mode” with how the vaccines will take effect prior to the first show but tells the Los Angeles Times he himself is full vaccinated. “I had no doubt about it. I’m old enough to remember polio — kids in my street who were crippled by a disease that was eradicated very quickly by vaccines,” he said.

He also opening said his option of the vaccine naysayers like Eric Clapton and Van Morrison. “Don’t trust the vaccines.” I mean, where does this come from? I’m not sure where the science is to support that”.

The ‘My Song’ name is a reflection of his 2019 album ‘My Songs’ which was his second album of reinventions of his own work.
