Since then, Sting has also established himself as an actor, activist and solo artist, though he has recently reunited with his bandmates in The Police for tours.

The Sting 25 app (free, iPad only) sports hours of interviews, music videos, live footage and more, and acts as a user-controlled “appumentary” overview of his solo career as well as coinciding with his recent 60th birthday. The app features exclusive footage from Sting’s birthday concert for the Robin Hood Foundation in New York City, which featured a number of music celebrities including Bruce Springsteen, Lady Gaga, Stevie Wonder, Herbie Hancock and Branford Marsalis among others.
