Sting celebrated his 60th birthday in style last night with a star-studded concert in New York, including also his English family, at New Yorks Beacon Theatre.
Guests included Billy Joel, Bruce Springsteen, Lady Gaga, Mary J. Blige, Robert Downey, Jr., Herbie Hancock, Will.i.am, Rufus Wainwright and Stevie Wonder.
Bruce Springsteen performed three songs and then joined in on the finale at Sting’s 60th birthday bash at the Beacon Theater in New York City on Saturday night. Bruce performed Sting’s “Hung My Head,” and “Fields of Gold.” Sting then joined Bruce to play “Can’t Stand Losing You.” The finale was “Every Breath You Take” with all of the evening’s artist.
Lady Gaga did a horrible version of King of Pain.
