He is also asking fans to donate money at his concerts Down Under. "It would be difficult to come here and not deal with that. We're asking people to make donations at the shows for the Salvation Army and the Red Cross and the Premier's Appeal," the Daily Star quoted Sting as telling the Sydney Morning Herald.
"(I'm) making a personal donation and on this compilation album for the victims. It's a small thing, but we do what we can. We get a lot from our audience so we have to give something back occasionally," he added.
