A&E In Concert: Sting in Tuscany: All This Time Receives Six Emmy Nominations

    NEW YORK, July 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Multi-platinum A&M recording artist
 Sting received a primetime Emmy nomination this week for his behind-the-scenes
 documentary and concert Sting in Tuscany: All This Time which aired as part of
 the "A&E In Concert" series.  Sting's nomination is for "Outstanding
 Individual Performance in a Variety or Music Program."  The documentary itself
 garnered an additional five nominations.
     This is the first Emmy nomination for the 16-time Grammy winner, two-time
 Oscar nominee and this year's Golden Globe winner for best original song in a
 motion picture ("Until ... " from Kate & Leopold.) Earlier this year, Sting
 won the Grammy for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance, was presented with the
 Brit Award for Outstanding Contribution to British Music as well as the Ivor
 Novello Award for International Achievement and was inducted into The
 Songwriters Hall of Fame.
     Sting in Tuscany: All this Time is the result of Sting's vision to film
 the development and realization of his first live CD in 15 years ("All This
 Time").  The documentary, which takes us through the week-long creative and
 intense -- though lighthearted -- rehearsal for what is meant to be an
 intimate concert for a select group of fans at Sting's home in Tuscany,
 suddenly takes a dramatic turn the day on which they are to perform --
 September 11, 2001.  The tragic turn of events gives this documentary a
 storyline and drama it did not anticipate.
     The three-hour documentary debuted on A&E in November 2001.  Both the
 album and DVD also released in November 2001 on A&M Records continue to enjoy
 great success with the album selling 2.5 million records worldwide.
     Sting, who is thrilled about the nominations, is especially pleased
 because the nominations honor Tim White, the recently deceased Billboard
 Editor.  White, who served as the Associate Producer and Head Writer for the
 project, helped to shape and define the voice and direction of the documentary
 through a series of interviews.
     Sting will soon be entering the studio to begin work on his next album
 slated for release sometime in 2003.
 
     (The 54th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards will take place on Sunday,
 September 22 at the Los Angeles Shrine Auditorium and will be televised on
 NBC.)
