Sting: 57th & 9th Tour

Following sold out concerts across North America, Europe, South America and Mexico, Sting’s 57th & 9th World Tour comes to Russia.

Tue. Oct. 03

For his Moscow performance Sting will be accompanied by a 3-piece band including his longtime guitarist, Dominic Miller, Josh Freese (drums) and Rufus Miller (guitar) with special guest Joe Sumner, as well as accordion player, Percy Cardona, who regularly performs with The Last Bandoleros. The program includes Roxanne, Next To You, Every Breath You Take, Englishman in New York, Fragile, Russians, Fields Of Gold, Desert Rose, and songs from the latest album. Sting’s twelfth solo studio album, 57th & 9th, his first rock/pop project in over a decade, was released November 11 on A&M/Interscope Records. The ten-song collection represents a wide range of Sting’s musical and songwriting styles from the raucous, guitar-driven first single, “I Can’t Stop Thinking About You” to the ferocious, Road Warrior-style imagery of “Petrol Head” and the anthemic “50,000.” Read more
