Grammy-winning musician appearing live at Appreciation Event
Oracle is excited to announce that world-renowned musician Sting will perform live during Oracle OpenWorld 2011. Sting took a few minutes from his busy schedule to answer our five questions:
Q: When were you last in San Francisco and what do you love about the city and California?
Sting: I was last in San Francisco a couple of years ago (May 18, 2009) to perform at a benefit concert for the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. It’s a great city and one I truly enjoy visiting. Like so many who grew up in England under the rain clouds, coming to California is always a breath of fresh air for me.
Q: What excites you the most about playing live and what kind of experience do you want your audience to have?
Sting: All I ever wanted to be in life is a musician. I love being on stage and seeing the audience enjoy themselves and most importantly, be surprised. The element of surprise is really the one essential in music. I think every time you perform a song you have to breathe new life into it, especially with a song like “Roxanne” that I’ve performed thousands of times. It’s my job to discover something new or some alternate meaning and to present even the smallest variation each time I sing it.
Q: Why are you passionate about protecting the rainforest—what's the one thing that everyone could do to help?
Sting: I see what’s happening in the rainforest as a universal problem that affects us all. I was fortunate enough to travel to the Amazon and meet with indigenous peoples, and that really gave rise to a passion in me to help protect these natural resources for present and future generations. Trudie and I are very proud of the work we’ve done in the Amazon and with The Rainforest Foundation. I think the most important thing to do is raise awareness and try to stir a desire in people to do whatever they can to help out.
Q: You've got a busy summer planned, capped off with your performance at Oracle OpenWorld 2011. What do you like most about touring?
Sting: There’s no way to describe the feeling of going on stage in front of thousands of people who are pleased to see you. That’s something you can’t be blasé about. I also feel as though I’m probably at my most free when I am singing, and touring gives me the opportunity to experience that honesty and candidness almost every night.

Attendees Enjoy Live Music, Sunshine, and Piles of Good Eats
The attendees may have been tired from a week of seeing, learning, and meeting. They may have been over saturated with technical info. Loaded down with swag. Ready to get on home. But they still showed up to close out Oracle OpenWorld 2010 at the "It's a Wrap" event on Thursday in Yerba Buena Gardens.
There was plenty of good ol' Rock 'n' Roll, with Oracle's own Tom Geck fronting the band.
"We're going to try and play one song from each of the (Appreciation Event) bands," said Tom.
And while the crowd called out for "Fergalicious," he offered up "The Joker" by Steve Miller.
That was close enough. Some people danced while others helped themselves to piles of hot dogs, tacos, salads and wraps, candy and cookies, and lots of cold beer courtesy event sponsor Tsing Tao.
The crowd grew. The food diminished. Then slowly, the crowd diminished until only the waiters and caterers were left to clean up.
And so, on the kind of warm, lovely day that has eluded San Francisco all summer, Oracle OpenWorld 2010 came to a close.
