Sting and the Roots rock the Mall for Earth Day [Video]

The National Mall in Washington, D.C. has had pavilions, windmills and solar panels atop the new grass since the official celebration of Earth Day earlier this week.

One dome even contained an electric motorcyle from Siemens, the beautiful “smart chopper.”

Tonight, the Mall also featured some of the world’s best musicians bouncing rock, rhythm and soul off of the walls of the Smithsonian.

While I didn’t record the cover of “Crazy” that Joss Stone belted out, backed by the Roots and Booker T, or any of John Legend or Bob Weir’s performances, I did manage to capture video of Sting’s performance.

He and the Roots put on a tight four song set. Sorry for the shaky camera work; a man’s gotta dance.

Sting and the Roots: “Fragile”

Sting and the Roots: “Driven to Tears”

Sting and the Roots: “One World

Sting and the Roots: “Message in a Bottle”
