Sting Heading out on Annual “Back to Bass” Tour

Sting has spent the last year playing with the London Philharmonic Orchestra and before that, he spent two years traveling with his band, The Police. But the iconic singer isn’t ready to slow down as he’s just announced that this summer will take him out on the road on the “Back to Bass” tour — something that’s becoming an annual event!

This will be the third year in a row that Sting has picked up his bass guitar to play a stripped-down version of some of his most popular songs for audiences. Those songs date all the way back to 1985 when he first came out with The Dream of the Blue Turtles album. The songs won’t be completely stripped down and set against just a bass, though. Sting’s also bringing a band with him: Dominic Miller on guitar, David Sancious on keyboards; Peter Tickell on the fiddle; and Vinnie Colaiuta on drums. Jo Lawry will also be along for the ride to provide backup vocals.

The tour will include 17 North American stops in total and the leg will both start and end in Canada. It begins on May 30 in Kelowna, B.C. and ends on June 26 in St. John’s, Newfoundland. Sting will be making sure he sees plenty of American fans along the way though, also making stops in Chicago, Denver, Boston, and Atlantic City, to name just a few.

Once Sting wraps up the North American leg he’ll be headed to the UK for a handful of shows there, most of which are festival dates. You can find a complete list of dates and venues on the Sting tickets page on
