TEN THOUSAND FOR THE GIG. TWO HUNDRED AND SIXTY THOUSAND FOR NOT TELLING ANNIE LENNOX ABOUT IT: In what might be the most expensive gig of alltime, and certainly is the most over-paid appearance, Bill Gates paid Sting over a quarter of a million quid for an eight song set. We love that it's possible to actually determine exactly what Sting's price is now, down to the penny. We're thinking of starting an appeal to see if we can get him down to our Christmas party. He won't be asked to sing any songs, we just have plans involving a pile of day old-lard and a bunch of hungry schnauzers. Worth 273k of anyone's money, surely?
