This fall, Sting will embark on the Back to Bass tour throughout North America as he celebrates the 25th anniversary of his solo career by taking it back to bass — all of the hits, stripped down, as they haven’t been played in years. Tickets go on sale beginning Sept. 19 at Ticketmaster.com and LiveNation.com.
In support of his forthcoming box set collection Sting: 25 Years, slated for release on September 27, the tour features Sting backed by a 5-piece band (longtime guitarist Dominic Miller, guitarist Rufus Miller, drummer Vinnie Colaiuta, Peter Tickell on electric fiddle, and vocalist Jo Lawry) in an intimate theatre setting.
Back to Bass will find Sting performing songs spanning his dynamic and enduring solo career, from his 1985 debut The Dream Of The Blue Turtles to his latest release, Live in Berlin, plus a selection of The Police’s greatest hits. Highlights include the Grammy® winners “Brand New Day” and “If I Ever Lose My Faith In You” plus fan-favorites “Englishman In New York,” “Desert Rose” and “Roxanne.”
Beginning in Boston on October 21 at The Wang Theatre at the Citi Performing Arts Center, the tour will extend across the United States and Canada including stops in Philadelphia, Washington DC, Toronto, Chicago, Detroit, Miami, Dallas, Houston, Denver, Phoenix, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle and Vancouver. Additional dates will be announced in the coming weeks.
