Pine trees? Hmmmm...this looks interesting. What could pine trees possibly have to do with the cancellation of a Sting (Gordon Sumner, since he hates being called that) concert?ROCK superstar Sting has forced organizers to move his planned one-night show in the Philippines to another Manila venue amid a spat over pine trees involving the original hosts, it was announced on Friday.
Environmentalists had sued the SM Baguio shopping mall in the northern mountain resort of Baguio City earlier this year to stop the uprooting and relocation of 182 old trees, mostly pines, growing at its property.
Ummm...they're pine trees. Pine trees are freaking everywhere. And, for some stupid reason, the developer has even agreed to replant the damn things.

Sting -- Aside from being a professional douche bag, he once gave his family a Christmas to remember. Sting purchased a $11,900 living Christmas tree which he then had shipped into his 41-room English mansion, with a specialist florist brought in to hang the baubles. Now that's the spirit of Christmas!
