Deluxe CD/DVD Edition. 2010 live album from the former Police man and solo superstar. Culled from Sting's critically acclaimed world tour, Symphonicity, this live CD/DVD compilation features many of his greatest hits, including "Roxanne," "Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic," "King Of Pain," "Fields Of Gold," and more, all re-imagined for symphonic arrangement. Featuring special guest Branford Marsalis on select tracks, this live concert experience is quintessential Symphonicity! Recorded September 21 at the O2 Arena, Live in Berlin captures Sting, for the first time, on the acclaimed Symphonicity world tour, which has garnered rave reviews from sold-out performances in prestigious venues such as Red Rocks in Denver, the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, the Metropolitan Opera House in New York, London's Royal Albert Hall, among others.
Recorded on September 21, 2010 as Sting was smack dab in the middle of his Symphonicities tour, Live in Berlin – available as a CD/DVD set, a Blu Ray, and a condensed single-disc CD – offers further orchestral reimaginings of Sting’s songbook, retaining a healthy chunk of the songs on the 2010 album Symphonicities and finding room for other highlights from his past, both obscure and quite familiar (“Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic,” “Russians,” “King of Pain,” “Every Breath You Take”all pop up on the video). Compared to the studio album, the symphonic flourishes don’t seem quite as overwhelming – the attention is drawn to Sting and his songs, not to the orchestrations – and the show is paced expertly, turning Live in Berlin into a bit of sophisticated comfort food for longtime Sting fans.

Since the early 1980s he has spent much of his time in Germany and has made occasional appearances there and elsewhere. He was awarded an Artist of the Year award in 1980 for his vocals on Mike Oldfield's song "Shadow on the Wall". In 2004 he was awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award.
