Sting and Paul Simon’s tour will see the inflectional musicians play a mammoth 30-plus song set list that will include their biggest hits from Every Breath You Take to The Boxer. The duo will perform both together and separately.

The legendary Sting will play two shows in April 2015 in celebration of the 10th anniversary of the Sage Gateshead.
The former Police frontman will play at the venue on 24 and 25 April 2015 and is expected to perform tracks from his latest album The Last Ship.
After the split of 80’s chart-topper The Police, Sting embarked on a successful solo career that saw him expand the sound he crafted with The Police. Throughout his career he has always been a prolific campaigner for his humanitarian projects, most notably his activism for the Brazilian rainforest and commitment to Amnesty International.
While many celebrities could be accused of using humanitarian causes to boost their public profile, in Sting’s case it’s a life-long dedication that keeps directly influencing his musical output. From crystal clear pop via world music to jazz and beyond, Sting has convincingly flirted with many genres.
The recent The Police reunion turned out to be a remarkable success and saw Sting and his former band mates play sold-out stadium concerts around the globe. It also reconnected him with his early career and maybe served as a reflection and gap stop to contemplate where to go next.
Just two years ago the singer and songwriter celebrated his 25th anniversary as a solo artist. The following year he released his eleventh solo album, The Last Ship. When seeing Sting live expect a selection of songs off his amazing solo back catalogue, such as Fields of Gold, Englishman in New York or Russians and those stunning pop gems he wrote when with The Police.
