Sting Confirms He Has No Plans To Retire
Sting sat down for an exclusive interview with People before his Las Vegas residency show and confirmed that he will keep performing and has no retirement plans for now.
Sting has a long journey in the music world, from his days in The Police to his prolific solo career. The singer has varied his musical style throughout his career, incorporating distinct elements of rock, pop, jazz, new age, reggae, classical, and worldbeat into his sound. Sting has become one of the best-selling musicians in the world with his career both with The Police and as a solo artist.
The rocker remains active and keeps producing new original material for the music audience. He released his fifteenth and latest studio album, ‘The Bridge,’ on November 19, 2021. In February 2022, he released ‘Por Su Amor,’ a Spanish adaptation of his song, ‘For Her Love.’ Later, he also collaborated with Swedish House Mafia and released a song named ‘Redlight‘ in March 2022.
Considering his latest works and eagerness to create new music, the 70-year-old singer doesn’t seem to say goodbye to the music scene soon. In an article he recently wrote for the Times, the rocker had explained that he doesn’t plan to retire soon since he doesn’t feel prepared for it, and also, taking music out of his life would be pretty hard. Sting confirmed his point again in his new interview and said he intends to keep going. He referred to Mick Jagger, who keeps performing splendidly in 78 and thinks he has more years before leaving the stage.
Sting speaking on his retirement plans:
“I’m going to keep going. Mick Jagger is 79 next month. He’s going as good as he ever was. He’s amazing, phenomenal.”
The singer has been currently continuing his ‘My Songs: The Las Vegas Residency’ shows. He has gigs scheduled for June 15, 17, and 18. Later, his European tour will kick off on June 21 in Gothenburg, Sweden.
