Sting to Sing in South Africa
Sting will bring his Back to Bass Tour to the Coca-Cola Dome on 24 & 25 March and to the Grand Arena on 27 & 28 March. Ticket prices start at R395 and go on sale this Friday (25 November) via Computicket.
Back to Bass will see Sting performing songs spanning his 25-year 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-favourites “Englishman In New York”, “Desert Rose” and “Roxanne”.
Stings’ tour band will include his long time guitarist Dominic Miller, Rufus Miller (guitarist), Vinnie Colaiuta (drummer), Peter Tickell (electric fiddle), and Jo Lawry (vocalist).
To commemorate the 25th anniversary of Sting’s solo career, the definitive box set Sting: 25 Years, was released on last month and features three CDs and a previously unreleased live DVD, Rough, Raw & Unreleased: Live at Irving Plaza. The discs are housed in a hardcover book featuring rare photos, complete lyrics and newly written commentary by Sting.
