The latest Sting concerts will be hitting major cities in North America for fall 2011. While the iconic bass player from The Police has recently turned sixty years young, he shows little signs of slowing down. The recent announcement comes in support of his box release "Sting: 25 Years." The set of the cd's covers every last inch of Sting's solo career, which many might find hard to believe has been over twenty-five years. The "Back To Bass" tour will include a five-piece band which will strip down songs from his works as well as many Police classics. Tickets are on sale now for the Sting concert and tour.
Sting's announcement to head back out on a full-fledged tour is exciting news for fans. The former Police bass player seems to have a second wind from The Police reunion tour which was a huge box-office success. As stated above he intends to "strip down" most of the arrangements, likely meaning no additions of "worldly" instruments such as his Synclaviers. While the tour is in full celebration of his twenty-five year solo career, he promises to mix some classic Police songs into the sets. Reading between the lines one can be assured of hearing "Roxanne" but hopefully other great songs such as "So Lonely" will be covered.
Sting will reunite with his longtime guitar player Dominic Miller along with Rufus Miller (guitarist), the outstanding work of Vinnie Colaiuta on drums, Peter Tickell (electric fiddle), and Jo Lawry (vocalist). The stage will include no keyboards nor saxophone, which is extremely rare for "post-Police" Sting shows. Many songs in the set list from his solo career have not been played to live in years. Expect to hear everything from his 1985 debut "The Dream of The Blue Turtles" to his latest release, "Live in Berlin," as well as much Police greatest hits. Songs which have been announced to certainly be in the set lists include "Brand New Day" and "If I Ever Lose My Faith In You" in addition favorites like "Englishman In New York," "Desert Rose" and "Roxanne."
While it may be difficult for fans to believe Sting is now sixty and has enjoyed twenty-five years as a solo artist after being the singer/songwriter, bass playing front-man for "The Police" the exciting thing is that they will be treated to a rare intimate concert event. For fans, the true treat is being able to hear many songs, which have not been performed live on stage in years. On top of that all songs will be played with entirely new arrangements in the intimate settings of a theater. The Sting concert and "Back To Bass" tour is already highly anticipated and one of the most desired shows for fall 2011.
