Sting and his Back to Bass Tour will be coming to South Africa as he celebrates the 25th anniversary of his solo career by taking it back to base… all of the hits, stripped down, as they haven`t been played in years.
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).
