    Sting & the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra

    Platinum albums, screaming fans and three decades' worth of critical and popular acclaim are nothing compared to a show accompanied by an honest-to-God Royal Philharmonic. Of course, Sting's entire career has been on a trajectory to play "black tie a...

    Big Bad Voodoo Daddy
