Ban Ki-Moon, UN Secy General: A Sting Fan, Why Not?


Guess who’s a fan of Sting? Why, UN General Secretary Ban Ki-Moon. He was front and center Wednesday night at the Metropolitan Opera House for Sting’s second show with the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra. Secretary Moon was seen bopping to “Every Breath You Take.” Afterwards he stopped by the Belmont Room and chatted with Sting and wife Trudie Styler. Also on hand for the second big Sting night: none other than Kathie Lee Gifford and Jann Wenner, but not together…Sting tapes the CBS Early Show this morning…

Meantime, Sting and Trudie’s daughter, Coco, has a hit in the UK charts.
