Joined by an orchestra, a band and background singers, he performed very different versions of "Roxanne," "Message in a Bottle" and "Every Breath You Take."
Those lucky enough to be walking through the piazza on Sunday got to see him doing his soundcheck and bantering with the audience, as well as glancing up at the magnificent Duomo di Milano,
Sting, who owns a villa and a winery three hours away in Italy's Tuscany region, released a new album Friday. My Songs consists of reworkings of his classic cuts, including the three he did in Milan.
Sting is in Paris for a show tonight (Tuesday).
