Fiction Plane lead singer Joe Sumner, 30, admits he’s guilty ofnepotism in regards to his band’s opening act gig for The Police. Hisdad Sting offered him the coveted spot, which Joe nearly turned down.

Still,Joe says he’s not taking advantage of his blood ties too much. While hedoesn’t know how much he’s making on tour, he believes it’s less than whatMaroon 5 will take in when they inherit the slot later. Furthermore,Fiction Plane finds its own way to venues, eschewing rides on ThePolice’s private jet.
