Sting sets dates for stripped down, 'Back To Bass' tour
See him in the smallest venues he's played in years
Playing the smallest venues he’s played in decades, Sting will embark on a theater tour starting Oct. 21 in conjunction with the 25th anniversary of his solo career.
As Hitfix previously reported, Der Stingle turns 60 Oct. 2 and many of his famous friends, including Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel and Lady Gaga, will help him celebrate the milestone via a concert at New York’s Beacon Theater. Tickets are $280, but they go to a good cause: The Robin Hood Foundation.
On Sept. 27, a few days before the big blow-out, Sting will release a 3-CD, 45-track “Sting: 25 Years” set that spans his solo career, as well as a DVD of a previously unreleased concert filmed at New York’s Irving Plaza. (“The Dream of The Blue Turtles” came out in 1985, so it’s really 26 years, but who’s counting?)

Then on Oct. 21, starting at Boston’s Wang Theater, Sting will kick off the “Back To Bass” tour. Accompanied by a five-piece band, Sting will perform stripped-down versions of songs spanning his solo career as well as Police selections.
Tickets go on sale Sept. 19.
