CHICAGO (CBS) — Every breath he takes seems to captivate crowds. Now rock superstar Sting is spending the summer in Chicago, tweaking a new musical he’s written that’s bound for the Broadway stage.
CBS 2’s Vince Gerasole reports this time his music is more personal, telling tales of those who worked the English shipyards near his childhood home.
“I was born and raised in a shipyard and I escaped when I was a teenager. I didn’t want to work in the shipyard,” said Sting.
The rock superstar went on to sell 100 million albums. But he’s now taking his latest release, “The Last Ship,” into the uncharted waters of a musical stage production.
