Veteran rocker Sting has vowed never to let his songs be turned into a stage musical

The former Police frontman is keen not to follow in the footsteps of contemporaries Queen, Rod Stewart and ABBA - who have all inspired productions on London's West End.

The singer says, "If I was going to do a musical theatrical thing, it would be something new and fresh, not pieced together with my old songs."
