STRINGS AND STING: It makes sense that Sting is touring with the Royal Philharmonic this summer. Perfect sense, in fact. He's always been a bit of a one-man orchestra, so we can only imagine that when the balladeer is backed up by all that classical, violin-y goodness, the sound soars. He's at the Hollywood Bowl on June 15, and in Irvine the following night. ON-SALE: Those Irvine tickets are going on sale at 10 a.m. on Monday, March 15. The venue is Verizon Wireless, of course.
