Sting (71), a “super legend” of the rock world, made an appearance in Tokyo. Sting, who came to Japan for “MY SONGS JAPAN TOUR 2023,” started with a performance in Hiroshima on March 8, moved on to Osaka the next day, and landed at Tokyo Station on the Shinkansen bullet train that day. Sting was walking in the center of the group with his band members surrounding him, and his tall figure with silver hair stood out even from a distance.

It’s been three and a half years since they last performed in Japan,” said Sting, “and it coincides directly with the time when the world was in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis. The expectations were that much higher for Japanese fans, and he sang more than 20 songs, including classic songs such as “Message in a Bottle” and “Englishman in New York. Sting, wearing a T-shirt and playing the bass guitar, had muscular arms and a voice so powerful that it was hard to believe he was 71 years old,” said a music magazine editor.

Sting was wearing a black blouson and black T-shirt. His chest area was ridged with muscles, and the way he walked with a straight back was not very convincing, but he did not look 71 years old. He did not change a single expression in the face of the noisy fans, and when asked for an autograph, he silently accepted a notebook and pen. His appearance was truly cool.

Sting is also a conservationist and an anti-war activist calling for the abolition of nuclear weapons. When Russia invaded Ukraine, he posted “Russians,” released in 1985, on Instagram. It is an anti-war song released during the Cold War and has also called for cooperation with the “Help Ukraine” movement since the war began. I heard that he dared to add Hiroshima, the site of the atomic bombing, to the three major cities of Tokyo, Osaka, and Nagoya for his Japan tour this time. His world tour includes this kind of message as well,” said a music magazine editor.

In a video posted by Sting, he recalls, “I didn’t sing this song for a long time because I didn’t think it would happen again like it did.

Sting reflected on the song,

We all love our children. We all love our children, and we want the war to stop.

He said, “We all love our children. Although he did not sing “Racians” on his Japan tour, he hopes that the war will be over by the time he comes to Japan again.

You would never guess that he is 71 years old!
