Performing his greatest hits, stripped down to celebrate the 25th anniversary of his solo career
Following the success of his North American tour this fall, Sting’s Back to Bass Tour will extend to Europe early next year 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.
Currently garnering stellar reviews throughout North America, the European tour will begin February 5th, 2012 in Newcastle at the Sage Gateshead with additional performances in Amsterdam, Brussels, Copenhagen, Gothenburg, Prague, Stockholm, Warsaw, and Vienna as well as multiple dates in France, Germany and the UK.
In support of Sting: 25 Years, the recently released box set collection, Back to Bass finds 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 fan favourites such as “Desert Rose,” “Every Breath You Take,” and “Fields of Gold.” Sting will be joined by a band including his longtime guitarist Dominic Miller, Rufus Miller (guitarist), Vinnie Colaiuta (drummer), Peter Tickell (electric fiddle), and Jo Lawry(vocalist).
