Sting: When the Last Ship Sails

At New York's Public Theatre, Sting and his band perform songs from his album The Last Ship, which was inspired by the shipbuilding community of Wallsend in his native north east.

Sting performs songs from his album The Last Ship in an intimate live performance recorded at the Public Theatre, New York. Inspired by the shipbuilding community of Wallsend in the north east of England where Sting was born and raised, the songs form part of his Broadway play. For his first new work in a decade he and his band, many of whom hail from the north east, are joined by actor and singer Jimmy Nail.
