Sting goes 'back to bass' in Singapore concert
Rock superstar Sting is set to play at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on 13th December 2012.
Following the critical and commercial hit of his 2011 world tour, Lushington Entertainments and Live Nation have announced that his Back To Bass tour will now extend to Southeast Asia. In the show, Sting performs many of his solo hits—and songs by his previous band The Police—in a stripped-down manner.
His touring band includes guitarist Dominic Miller, drummer Vinnie Colaiuta, keyboardist David Sancious, fiddler Peter Tickell and backing vocalist Jo Lawry.
Sting, who is also an activist, was born in Newcastle, England before moving to London in 1977. There he formed The Police with Stewart Copeland and Andy Summers. They released five albums, won six Grammys, and in 2003 was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame.
The Police's hits include Roxanne, Don’' Stand So Close To Me, Message In A Bottle, Everything Little Thing She Does Is Magic, Wrapped Around Your Finger, and Every Breath You Take from their last album Synchronicity.
Sting has recorded 13 solo albums since 1985, and to mark the 25th anniversary of his career, he released a definitive box-set retrospective titled 25 Years, and a double disc collection titled The Best Of 25 Years.
He's sold close to 100 million albums from his solo and combined work with The Police, and has earned 10 Grammys, one Golden Globe, an Emmy, and three Oscar nominations.
Sting's solo career hits include Fields Of Gold, Fragile, If You Love Somebody Set Them Free, Love Is The Seventh Wave, Russians, If I Ever Lose My Faith In You, When We Dance, Englishman In New York, Fortress Around Your Heart, It’'s Probably Me, All This Time, We'll Be Together, and Desert Rose.
