From new wave and punk to jazz, rock, reggae and even classical lute albums, Sting has become one of the world’s most prolific and versatile musicians, but the constant throughout his career has been his hunger to challenge himself and evolve. One of Sting’s most recent creative projects was “The Last Ship,” a musical homage to his hometown of Wallsend in Northeast England. Sting talks and sings about growing up in the shadow of the shipyards, reflecting on how his home community gave him imaginative access to a whole new cast of characters whose stories he wanted to tell. Pizzitola Memorial Sports Center, 233 Hope Street.
