Rocker turns 60 with help from Bruce, Gaga, Billy Joel and others…

Sting celebrated his milestone birthday onstage among a sold-out crowd at New York’s Beacon Theatre on October 1st.

“Sixty feels comfortable, I’ve always felt sort of old”, as he jammed onstage with Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel, Stevie Wonder and Lady Gaga.
The birthday blowout, raised $3.7 million for the Robin Hood Foundation to fight poverty.
“For me, getting older enriches life. You realize there are a limited number of summers left – or tours, songs, relationships – so you really have to value them.”

Sting just released “25 Years”, a box set focusing on his quarter-century as a solo artist, and this month he kicks off the 32-date Back to Bass tour, playing in theaters with a stripped-down band.

This rocker proves that he only gets better with age.
