The two names are synonymous to each other. With a huge fan following and score very high on the popularity quotient. This is a rocking combination. The music played by the band is a perfect combination of pop and rock music. There is nothing like seeing the band perform live. The whole experience takes you to a new height.

Relocating from Newcastle to London In January 1977 and immediately after that he joined Stewart Copeland and Henry Padovani (who was later substituted by Andy Summers) to form the new genre band named The Police. Between the years 1978 and 1983, the band went on to release five chart-topping albums. They also won six Grammy Awards. Initially punk inspired their music. However, gradually they switched to reggae-tinged rock and minimalist pop. Their last album together, Synchronicity, was released in the year 1983. It included one of their most successful songs, "Every Breath You Take". Yet another popular song of the band is "Don't Stand So Close to Me" which topped the charts. Although the band did not break up formally after Synchronicity, they concentrated more on their solo careers. With time, the possibility of the band reuniting became more and more dismal.

While never formally breaking up, after Synchronicity, the group agreed to concentrate on solo projects. As the years went by, the band members increasingly dismissed the possibility of reforming. In the year 2007, however, the band renewed their ties and announced a world tour.

Sumner was born in Wallsend, which is near Newcastle upon Tyne in northeast England. His parents’ name was Audrey Cowell and Ernest Sumner. He was the eldest of four children having a brother, Philip, and two sisters, Angela and Anita. His father ran a dairy. As a young boy he would often help him with the early morning milk distribution work. Sumner grew up following the Roman Catholic tradition, as a result of the influence of his paternal grandmother, who belonged to an Irish family. From his childhood, Sumner decided that he wanted to cull out a career as a musician. His first music performances were wherever he could get hold of a job, performing in the evenings, during weekends, and during vacations from college and teaching. He performed with the local jazz bands such as the Phoenix Jazzmen, the Newcastle Big Band, and Last Exit.

Sumner got his nickname while he was with the Phoenix Jazzmen. Once he had performed wearing a black and yellow pullover having hopped stripes. The bandleader Gordon Solomon said that it made him look like a bumblebee. And from thereon, the name "Sting" originated. He uses the nickname Sting exclusively, except while dealing with official documents. He says that even his kids call him by that name. He is popular all over the world by this nickname of his. In fact, very few people actually know his real name.
