I remember him being described as 6ft when he was a lot younger. Didn't he look tall in Quadrophenia, probably spelt that wrong. Maybe it's like all the old Hollywood stars who were officially 6ft even if they were 5'7'' in reality.

any guesses on his weight today rob?
[Editor Rob: still looks trim enough to be 165 range]
Shamrock says on 10/Feb/15
yeah, veered a little off topic there, apologies- on one final note there are a few scenes in the same movie with Sting standing next to Paul L. Smith who you've recently added at 6'4- he doesn't look a full five inches shorter to me, might be worth checking out
Shamrock says on 9/Feb/15
watched the clip again and you're right that they are quite close but MacLachlan definitely isn't any taller. I think you should consider adding a fraction to Sting's peak and lowering MacLachlan's slightly.

anyway, now you know who I am (although I expected you might, I used an alt. name for the sake of staying hidden from others) I'm going to take a break from posting again for a while, I might be able to attend LFCC this summer after all though still not sure, and I'm going to be getting a handful of new photo ops at NFCC next month, so I'll try and stand at my tallest for them and wear the thinnest footwear possible- hope they help
[Editor Rob: I think their fight is really hard to tell who was taller, unless there is a deleted scene of them together.

You might be better off rather than wear thin sneakers, wearing a 1-inch sneaker or shoe as then on average from years of observing what men wore, close to an inch seemed the average. Maybe if we didn't go onto the topic of your height and just stuck with the celebrities heights, it would be easier?]

rob, in Dune he was taller than Kyle Maclachlan and you have him listed as 6'0 peak.

more like sting was 5'11.5 and maclachlan was never over 5'11.
[Editor Rob: adam I watched a clip and they could look quite close but I wouldn't have said Sting was taller.]

Rob is there any chance of adding his Dune co-star Jurgen Prochnow, Click Here He was really a notable actor in the 80s and 90s, G image him and you should recognize him more. He was in some notable films like Das Boot, Dune, Judge Dredd, and Beverly Hills Cop 2 and has been in series like 24. He looked a legit 6 ft flat to me, in fact in Dune he could look 184 with Sydow. Today he might be nearer 5 ft 11.
Arch Stanton says on 28/Jan/15
Yeha I think that's a good shout, a solid 5'11 peak, just not a legit 6'.
Arch Stanton says on 27/Jan/15
Rob, can we all agree on 181 cm 5'11.25 peak, I think that's on the money.
[Editor Rob: yes 181 could be ok.]
Shamrock says on 27/Jan/15
rob i think 5'11.5 would be a better listing for his peak. copeland never looked a whole three inches taller back in the 80s.
Arch Stanton says on 27/Jan/15
Whenever I have my hair cut short with the clippers my look always reminds me of him. I don't mind it short in the summer but I really prefer it long and have been growing it since the end of August again! It looks more receding when its short but, not as extreme as his!!
Arch Stanton says on 27/Jan/15
Rob when did you downgrade him? it's been a long time coming I think. I could buy 181 peak but he never looked nearer 6 ft to me and today, yes, he can look 5'10 range.
[Editor Rob: a month ago I think he generally can look barely 5ft 11 today.]
Danimal says on 22/Jan/15
Used to read 6'0" or 6'1" for him. I'd say around 6'0" and slightly less today.

My son and I met Sting last month in NY and had our pictures taken with him. My son is 5'11" and he and Sting were the same height both in flat shoes.
Methinks says on 25/Dec/14
5'9 methinks
Neil Craig says on 23/Dec/14
This was for the award of the Kennedy Centre medal ceremony. I would suggest Sting is 5 foot 10 inches tall.
Bremparl says on 18/Nov/14
5.9 max. Met him a few times. Nice guy. Skinny and ordinary looking.
Lebensdorf says on 6/Nov/14
Yeah, I guess about 6ft at peak, closer to 5'11 now. I saw him at MSG, sitting close to the stage, I actually thought he was kind of short looking. Copeland seemed considerably taller from my vantage point.
Arch Stanton says on 3/Sep/14
With 5'9" range Bruce Springsteen and 5'8" De Niro although can't see footwear Click Here
Arch Stanton says on 3/Sep/14
Rob are you sure on 5'11.75? I'm not convinced he really looks it legitimately, his unusually high forehead and very fit build can make him seem taller I suppose. I'd thought more 5 ft 11 flat but he does actually look this with Adam Levine.
Rick says on 27/Jun/14
I met him 20 years ago. I'm 5'10 and I was on shock how I had a few inches on him
James B says on 22/Mar/14
Looks 6'1 cause he is so lean
MD says on 20/Mar/14
I'm not even going to bother to look at the video, because Sting is clearly somewhere between 5'11" and 6'0", and Springsteen is not "about 5'8"" What kind of silliness has infected this website as of late. First this "fsd" character trolling the place, and now this?
Cranky says on 17/Mar/14
According to this video, Sting is a bit shorter than Bruce Springsteen, who is generally reckoned to be about 5ft 8in:
tzt says on 25/Feb/14
sting can be nearly around 6' such as 5'9" -5'11"because he look about 3inches taller than ric flair.ric flair is nearly 5'9"
tzt says on 25/Feb/14
sting is 5'10"
Martin says on 22/Jan/14
Looked 5'9 to 5'10 next to Tommy Lee Jones and Sean Bean in Stormy Monday. Hard to believe he is anything over 5'10.

how about this? Click Here
avi says on 17/Dec/13
probably a weak 5'11
(S)aint 185 says on 6/Dec/13
I enjoy how all the I met him claims are giving different heights. Shows how often people lie about meeting celebrities to get what they want.
Bump says on 22/Nov/13
5'11 / 180 cm. The guy in the middle, Fredrik Skavlan, is 183 cm / 6'.

truth says on 14/Sep/13
I think around 5ft11.
Stumpy says on 9/Jul/13
Paddy must mean Andy Summers, who's on the petite side. Stewart Copeland, in contrast, is damned lanky and probably over 6' no problema. I agree with the others, Sting has lost a bit of height over the years. I saw him up close in July 2012 and I'd say he's now about 5'10" and still very thin indeed.
Paddy says on 11/Jun/13
He looks tall in some photos with the Police, but that's because he is standing next to Stu Copeland who is 5'3"-5'4"
Holly says on 15/Mar/13
I was back stage at a charity concert in the early 90s. I was with someone who was a roadie for one of the performers. At one point, I was standing shoulder to shoulder with Sting. He was very slender and no more than 5'10". I was just under 5'7" back then & I had on sneakers... he was wearing very flat canvas slip on type shoes. I also stood next to Elton John at same concert. He was just a tiny bit taller than me. With his regular type men's leather shoes, he stood approx, 5'8".
mike 181cm says on 24/Dec/12
I've met sting in NYC one of the FEW celebs I've met seemed my height or taller when I met him 3 years ago I mightve been 5"10 at least then but no way hes 5"8 5"9 range. Rob I think you are correct on this. Only thing is I'm not sure of footwear the day I met him..
Chrisnope says on 13/Nov/12
I saw Sting in Dallas at a hotel bar. I was standing when he walked in-locked eyes with him. I am 5'8 in a half and he was my height-no doubt about it. I also noticed he had on boots (like Dr. Martens) that had a large heel. This dude is NOT-NO WAY 5'11'!!
Sarah says on 7/Aug/12
I walked past him on the Upper West Side in 1998. He looked straight into my eyes (a shining moment in my life being I am a huge fan). I am 5'9" and he was not taller than me so I put his height at 5'8" TOPS.
