Any excuse to get more people to hear Adele's version of Make You Feel My Love is fine by us!

At least he is for his upcoming series of shows!

Sting recently announced his Fall 2011 North American Tour, which kicks off in Boston, MA October 21st and runs through the beginning of December, but unlike past concerts, the iconic singer has instead chosen to perform this year in much smaller venues!

Very cool! We wouldn't mind being that up close and personal with him! LOLz!

Check out the tour dates and venues…AFTER THE JUMP!

Sting Writing A New Musical!

| Filed under: Music MinuteBroadway BabiesSting

Sting Musical Last Ship SOS

Hell yeah!

Sting is writing a new musical called The Last Ship, which kinda sounds like a horror movie. Wait, no, that was Ghost Ship. Whatever!

Here's a bit about it, but there is NO official synopsis yet. Bummer:

The Last Ship features music and lyrics written by Sting and a book by Yorkey, who will direct the production, according to a casting breakdown being sent around. No official synopsis was provided, though the character descriptions indicate that the production is set in the city of Newcastle in the 1980s.

Lead character Gideon is said to be a "charismatic, charming, cynical, worldly-wise" man in his thirties, who is "quick to buy a round or throw a fist" but "slow to open his heart." He is a Newcastle native. The Last Ship is in early stages, in a "throw it up against the wall and see what sticks" phase.

"Sting's first foray into writing for musical theater so we wanted to start having him meet actors and hear them sing at the earliest possible point."

The good news is that it will probably have brand new Sting music, instead of rehashing his catalogue. New Sting?? Yes please!

Apparently he's got like 20-24 of them ready to go, too!

Can't wait to hear more about it!

We LOVE how he always manages to get the best talent to come on these shows!

Check out the just-released promo for Ricky Gervais' new mockumentary, Life's Too Short, which stars little person Warwick Davis as a fictionalized version of himself attempting to reclaim his star power, and will feature guest appearances from Johnny Depp, Steve Carell, Helena Bonham Carter, Cat Deeley, Sting, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, and Liam Neeson, to name a few (above)!

AH-Mazing!

This looks absolutely HIGHlarious, and will certainly fill the void left behind when Extras ended!

What do U think?? Do U want to see Life's Too Short?

Sting's daughter Coco Sumner happily showed off her androgynous style outside the Box Club in London last night.

Kinda hard to believe that's the same girl who appeared on the cover of Love magazine 2 years ago.
