This Week in History

Sting took the stage at Philips Arena on May 9th in 2001 on his 2001-2002 All This Time Tour. Sting started his music career as the principal songwriter for The Police as well as the lead singer and bassist in the band. The police performed together for 6 years releasing 5 chart topping albums together. Their best selling album, and their last, titled Synchronicity, included their most successful song "Every Breath You Take." This song then re-surfaced in 1997 at the death of rapper Notorious B.I.G. as Puff Daddy and Sting performed a compilation of this song on the MTV video Music Awards to honor Notorious B.I.G.
