Ottawa has played host to some well-known acts over the last month, and last Wednesday night was no different as Sting was in town as part of his My Songs tour.

Sting took the audience on a journey through the years, both musically and story wise, telling tales of song origins and funny moments from his life.

He also talked about his current project, a Las Vegas residency that started in 2021 and will be continuing after the current tour with no signs of slowing down.

The Police frontman proved that age is just a number, as the now 70-year-old Sting was still belting the notes to Roxanne like it was 1978.

Opening the night was Joe Sumner, Sting’s son, accompanied by just his guitar for a mainly acoustic set. Sumner has been a part of the band Fiction Plane since the early 2000s, with six albums released since.
