Sting Putting Classic Twist on Police Catalog

The Police Greatest Hits

Seeing as how I used to play drinking games in college to “Roxanne,” I really can’t picture watching Sting performing this number with the prestigious Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra, but that’s what’s in store for this summer.

The Police frontman plans to revise his band’s catalog with the help of the renowned British orchestra, and will be making his way across North America from early June through the end of July.

“I’ve always said a good song will survive almost anything,” Sting tells Billboard, “and some of these things were ripped off wholesale from classical music, anyway.”

Prior to the summer shows, Sting will perform at the May 13 benefit concert for he and wife Trudie Styler’s Rainforest Fund. Lady Gaga and Elton John are also on the entertainment bill for the fundraising gala.
