Sting sings for a good cause. The British star will perform songs from his new album, "The Last Ship" at ten concerts later this year that will benefit New York's Public Theater art organization. The concerts will run from September 25 to October 9 at the 260-seat Public Theater at the arts organization in Manhattan. "The Last Ship" which will be released on September 23rd, draws inspiration from Sting's childhood in northern England. It is his first album with original material since "Sacred Love" in 2003. A musical with the same name as the album, based on his experiences living near the Swan Hunter Shipyard in Wallsend, Newcastle, will also debut on Broadway next year.
