Sting recently announced that he will be going back on tour this year. His Back to Bass Tour will travel throughout North America as he celebrates the 25th anniversary of his solo career. He will play all of his most popular and well known songs, stripped down, as they were originally intended.
During this tour, Sting will perform his music from his long 25 year solo career, including hits from his 1985 debut The Dream Of The Blue Turtles to his most recent release, Live in Berlin, AND a few classics from The Police’s greatest hits. Of note include the Grammy winners “Brand New Day” and “If I Ever Lose My Faith In You” plus popular songs like “Englishman In New York,” “Desert Rose” and “Roxanne.” Joining Sting include his longtime guitarist Dominic Miller, Rufus Miller (guitarist), Vinnie Colaiuta (drummer), Peter Tickell (electric fiddle), and Jo Lawry (vocalist).
Tickets are on sale for the next two Mondays.
