Sting to perform at Indoor Stadium in May

British rocker Sting will be back to perform at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on May 28, his first gig here since 2012. Tickets to the show, part of a tour to promote his recently released 12th album 57th & 9th, start from $108 and go on sale via Sports Hub Tix on Dec 15.

Johnny Depp named most overpaid actor again

Johnny Depp, 53, is Hollywood's most overpaid actor for the second year running, says Forbes. The magazine says Depp, whose 2016 films included Alice Through The Looking Glass, returned just US$2.8 (S$4) at the box office for every US$1 he was paid.

Will Smith was second, returning US$5 for every dollar paid. His 2015 film Concussion grossed just US$13 million more than its US$34 million budget. George Clooney was at No. 5 because of the limited commercial appeal of films such as Hail Caesar and his 2015 flop Tomorrowland.
