Performing His Greatest Hits, Stripped Down and Raw
In Theatres Across the US & Canada
To Celebrate the 25th Anniversary of His Solo Career

New York, NY (September 12, 2011)  Live Nation is pleased to announce that this fall, Sting will embark on the Back to Bass Tour throughout North America as he celebrates the 25th anniversary of his solo career by taking it back to bass…all of the hits, stripped down, as they haven't been played in years.  Tickets go on sale beginning September 19th at Ticketmaster.comand

In support of his forthcoming box set collection Sting: 25 Years, slated for release on September 27, the tour features Sting backed by a 5-piece band in an intimate theatre setting.

Beginning in Boston on October 21 at The Wang Theatre at the Citi Performing Arts Center, the tour will extend across the U.S. and Canada.  Cities announced today include Philadelphia, Washington DC, Toronto, Chicago, Detroit, Miami, Dallas, Houston, Denver, Phoenix, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle and Vancouver. Additional dates will be announced in the coming weeks.

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.  This collection captures for the first time both the highlights and rarities of Sting’s enduring solo career and contains three CDs, all re-mastered exclusively for this set and personally curated by Sting, as well as a previously unreleased live DVD, Rough, Raw & Unreleased, filmed at New York City’s Irving Plaza. The discs are housed in a hardcover book featuring rare photos, complete lyrics, and newly written commentary by Sting. In addition, Sting: The Best of 25 Years (single disc) will be released on October 18, 2011.
