Sting, 68, has a sling and can't play the guitar on stage in France after a & # 39; accident with his shoulder & # 39;
Rocker Sting wore a sling for his last series of concerts after injuring his shoulder during the tour.
The Fields of Gold singer, who is currently unable to play the guitar on stage, is said to have sustained the injury during the tour last week between his performance in Osaka, Japan on October 15 and his latest series of performances in France.
Sting, 68, who canceled tour dates in July due to a mysterious illness, told his French audience in their native language what had happened.
Send an SOS! Sting, 68, wore a sling and was unable to play a guitar on stage in France on Friday after a & # 39;
He said: & # 39; Good evening. Let me explain this. I had an accident with my shoulder. Unfortunately I can't play my guitar tonight, but I can sing. The show must continue. & # 39;
He also appeared on a local radio station with his pendulum, because concerned fans asked if he was OK.
Others joked that maybe he had problems with tantric sex for six hours.
Sting, real name Gordon Sumner, who had last seen the streets of Japan before wearing his sling, walked through his set and even tried to shake a tambourine.
He said: & # 39; Good evening. Let me explain this. I had an accident with my shoulder. Unfortunately I can't play my guitar tonight, but I can sing. The show must continue & # 39;
He told how he wrote the song Roxanne after sharing a hotel with a prostitute in Paris and was excited when he performed for his audience.
It is thought that he will continue his journey through France before going to Italy, Germany, Poland and then North America in November.
Meanwhile, Sting – the former police frontman – had to cancel a number of European shows in July.
He announced the news on Twitter, and accused an unspecified disease of having kept him off the stage.
The message read: & # 39; It is with great regret that Sting's concerts are canceled.
& # 39; Sting is under the weather and by doctor's order, & # 39; he went on, saying that he & # 39; forced & # 39; was not to go to the podium.
& # 39; Sting sincerely regrets the disappointment or inconvenience to the fans and will offer refunds to the disappointed concert visitors. & # 39;
The star has previously spoken about being offered a place to stay in Vegas, which he thought he was not yet ready for & # 39; used to be.
Homes in Vegas were once meant for acts that are retiring or in the last part of their career, but that has changed with contemporary artists going to the city to perform, from Jennifer Lopez to Lady Gaga.
Taking this into account, he explained: & # 39; I always thought, "I'm not quite ready for that. I'm still a traveling animal." [Now] I am ready. & # 39;
& # 39; Being in one place is actually a different, spiritual atmosphere, & # 39; he continued. & # 39; Welcoming people into your home – that's basically what it's going to be.
& # 39; I will tell the story of my life through songs. I've had a long, interesting life and I can't wait. & # 39;
