Sting is showing that he's not only a talented singer but has a keen ear. On NBC's "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" Thursday the rocker turned ringtones into "Sting-tones," and in the process noticed the popular "Xylophone" ringtone sounds awfully familiar.
But Sting didn't just sing ringtones. He also provided a new outgoing message for one lucky member of the audience, and to the tune of The Police hit "Message in a Bottle" instructs callers to leave their name "when you hear the beep-oh."
Sting was on hand to promote his new musical "The Last Ship." He said he's liked musicals since he was a child, but his experience back then was limited. He explained that he never had the chance to see a show as a kid, but his mother had the soundtrack albums to all the classics like "Carousel" and "Oklahoma."
Sting's "The Last Ship" is being staged at the Neil Simon Theater in New York.
