In celebration of the 25th anniversary of his solo career, Sting is taking it back to bass…all of the hits, stripped down, as they haven’t been played in years. The concert is scheduled to begin at 8 p.m.
Tickets go on-sale Monday, October 3 and may be purchased in person at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace box office, online at www.ticketmaster.com or by calling 800.745.3000. Ticket prices are $200, $165, $100 and $75 (plus applicable taxes and fees).
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 the Grammy® winners “Brand New Day” and “If I Ever Lose My Faith In You” plus fan-favorites “Englishman In New York,” “Desert Rose” and “Roxanne.” 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).
To commemorate the 25th anniversary of Sting’s solo career, the definitive box set Sting: 25 Years, will be released on September 27, 2011.
