STING JOINS CHRIS BOTTI ON STAGE

Since Sting and Trudie were guests at Chris Botti’s show at Ronnie Scotts in London last week Thursday (29/06), both found it an excellent opportunity to perform together live onstage. Sting sang “My Funny Valentine”, joined by Chris and his band.
A nice thing to know: During a recent gig in the UK, there was an embarrassing interlude when Botti mentioned that the band played the White House last Sunday, provoking boos and hisses from the audience. He switched quickly to some light anti-Bush banter: “George knows less about jazz than that lampshade!” while the band improvises a Texan pastiche.
