Lady Gaga, Will.i.am + More Attend Sting’s 60th Birthday Party
Musician Sting celebrated his 60th birthday like a true rock star! The rocker had a lavish celebration that boasted an all-star guest list, with celebs like Lady Gaga, Will.i.am, Billy Joel, and Stevie Wonder in attendance.
Sting is actually celebrating his 60th birthday today, Oct. 2, but the Police frontman's family and friends gathered for a party last night at the Beacon Theater in New York City. According to NJ.com, Lady Gaga, Bruce Springsteen, and other performed at the theater on Sting's birthday eve, which also happened to be the 25th anniversary of the start of Sting's solo career.
Just like at the iHeart Radio Music Festival, Lady Gaga actually performed alongside Sting. She wrote about their duet on Twitter, saying, "Performed last night with my sweetie pie STING for his birthday! Sang one of my favorite songs of his "KING OF PAIN." She later wrote, "What a beautiful evening with his family. Wish all monsters could have been there" and posted the picture above.
The night wasn't just about Sting, however. The concert at the Beacon was also a benefit for the Robin Hood Foundation, which "funds and supports innovative poverty-fighting organizations in New York City."
