Sting lined up to play £1 million Christmas party

Sting is set to play at an office Christmas Party for £1 million next week.

The ex-Police frontman has agreed to perform at a bash staged by Czech tycoon Petr Kellner next Friday (December 16), reports The Sun.

The party at Prague Castle will mark 20 years in business for Kellner's finance firm PPF. Sting is currently co-writing a musical based around the lives of people in his home city of Newcastle.

The show, which is set to be titled 'The Last Ship', will feature music and lyrics from Sting and a book by Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winning writer Brian Yorkey.

The musical is reportedly set in the 1980s in Newcastle, with characters set to include a priest, a industrial titan and a former shipyard worker.

Lady Gaga, Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel and Stevie Wonder recently performed at Sting's 60th birthday for a special charity concert in New York.

The stars played a series of hits by The Police including 'King Of Pain' and 'Can't Stand Losing You'.
