MEXICO CITY – Sting’s performance in the Mexican capital included classics from his days with The Police and a tribute to the 43 students abducted in 2014 in the southern state of Guerrero.
Near the end of the concert, Sting appeared alone on stage to sing “Fragile,” wearing a white T-shirt bearing the word “Ayotzinapa” as well as photos of the missing students from the Ayotzinapa teachers college.
The 65-year-old icon opened with a pair of Police tunes, “Synchronicity II” and “Spirits in the Material World,” after sets by the Last Bandoleros and Sting’s son, Joe Sumner.
Sting – Gordon Sumner – later brought his son back on stage to join him in a rendition of “Ashes to Ashes” in honor of the late David Bowie.
Along with songs from his solo career, Sting obliged the 10,000 fans with Police classics such as “Every Little Thing She Does is Magic,” “Message in a Bottle,” “Roxanne,” and “Every Breath You take.”
