Sting gets message in Manila

– Sting has moved the location of his “Back to Bass Tour” concert in the Philippines following a petition by environmentalists who said the original venue is owned by a conglomerate that plans to uproot 182 trees for a parking lot and mall expansion in a northern mountain city.

SM Prime Holdings operates SM malls and the arena on Manila Bay.

Environmentalists said in their petition that as a champion of the environment, “Sting can’t be saving rainforests and enabling SM to rape the environment at the same time!”

Sting and his wife, Trudie Styler, established The Rainforest Foundation in 1989 to protect tropical rainforests and the people who live there.
