Sting brought the house down at tonight’s Tony Awards when he sang The Last Ship. It’s the title song from his upcoming musical and its message goes back to Sting’s English working class roots.
Sting himself told Rolling Stone earlier this month that he wanted the music to “reflect the traditional music of the northeast of England where I grew up”. Coming from that area of the country myself, I can absolutely testify he’s certainly succeeded.
Sting, of course, was born and raised in Wallend in Tyne and Wear – an area of the country known for its now-defunct shipyards; shipyards, and the men who worked in them, that had an enormous affect on the working class values of the people in the area.
Tonight’s Tony Awards took place at Radio City Music Hall in New York and were attended by a bevy of stars from the stage, screen and music worlds.
If you missed the 2014 Tony Awards, or you loved Sting singing The Last Ship, don’t worry, you can watch it (again) in the video below.
