STING’S THAI SOS

AFP Getty ImagesSting has become the first international star to perform in Thailand (on 12 January) since the tsunami disaster. But the Englishman in Bangkok chose to steer clear of any discussion about the tragedy which has rocked Indian Ocean countries including Thailand, where more than 5,300 people are confirmed dead and another 3,200 missing.
Instead, he opened the show with a song from his latest album, then strapped on his trademark bass and performed a poignant hit from the Police vault which cut to the heart of relief efforts across the region. The 1979 song, Message in a Bottle speaks of a castaway’s lonely life and his desperate call for rescue.
