Here’s the news from Sting’s official website:
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 the hits, stripped down, as they haven’t been played in years. 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.
To commemorate the 25th anniversary of Sting’s solo career, the definitive box set Sting: 25 Years, will be released on September 27, 2011 and features three CDs and a previously unreleased live DVD, Rough, Raw & Unreleased: Live at Irving Plaza. The discs are housed in a hardcover book featuring rare photos, complete lyrics and newly written commentary by Sting.
The tour comes to the Tower Theatre in Upper Darby on Wednesday, October 26. Ticket prices range from $48 to $148.50 (plus fees) and will go on sale to the general public next Monday, September 19th at 10 A.M. A presale for fan club members will begin tomorrow and end Wednesday. Tickets can be purchased through Live Nation. The show will start at 8 and there will be no opener. Full tour dates are below, with more to be confirmed and announced.
