Sting has fallen into irrelevance in a way that I think few people imagined. After the momentum of his early solo career, he started making albums that were easy to ignore. I don't think I could name the last three albums that he has made.

He embarrassed himself when the Police reunited. Instead of acknowledging that the appeal of the band was essentially that they played fast, energetic songs, he ruined things with his slow, jazzy side and left the legacy tarnished and damaged. Who's clamoring for another tour?

The only thing less interesting than a set from Sting would be another trip down memory lane with Paul Simon. Good God, do I want to stay as far away from that as possible.
