Fans who have followed him from his days as a member of The Police or those who got caught up with his sounds during his later solo years should be sure to book some cheap hostels in Madrid and go along to see the Newcastle-born man in action.
Sting would become a household name and his voice would be heard on radio waves around the country when he first teamed up with drummer Stewart Copeland in 1977 to form The Police.
Many of their songs are still well-known to this day, including such hits as Roxanne and Every Breath You Take, the latter of which graced the top spot of the charts for a lengthy eight weeks.
Their albums also fared well too, with all but one of them going either platinum or multi-platinum, though all of them did achieve the accolade of going gold, which was no easy feat to do either.
His solo career has also produced some well-loved hits too, with Fields Of Gold and Englishman In New York both achieving over 43,000 plays on Last.fm each over the past six months.
Those looking to book a cheap hostel in Madrid and enjoy the Halloween weekend will be only in for a treat if they go along to the gig by Sting, especially if a review on UltimateGuitar.com is anything to go by.
Anthony Bentley, the reviewer, explained: "Sting was a real showman. He was in constant interaction with the audience, in and out of songs."
