STING Rocks SoldOut Crowd At His Ravinia Debut
Nestled in the northern town of Highland Park, Illinois, Ravinia an outdoor music theater venue around since 1904 debuted the appearance of rock icon Sting last Saturday July 17, 2010 complete with a full orchestra and his wife in tow (singing on-stage with him), Trudie Styler. The park was as fully packed as I had ever seen it along with a perfect weather night and the sounds of all of Sting's classic hits including those from his days with The Police. Sting never dissapoints and the venue only added to the festivities. Too bad you missed it! Console yourself with a video which features his former trumpet-on-tour player Chris Botti and a similar orchestra set up that Sting had at the Ravinia concert.'Nuff Sed.
Here is a video of Sting featuring and orchestra and Chris Botti on trumpet:
