Sting Announces North American, European Tour Behind New Album '57th & 9th'

Following the recent release of his latest album 57th & 9th, Sting will take to the road in 2017, featuring concert dates in clubs, theaters and arenas throughout North America and Europe. Additional dates in South America and Asia will soon be announced. 

On the 57th & 9th Tour, Sting will be joined by a three-piece band including his longtime guitarist, Dominic Miller, plus Josh Freese (drums) and Rufus Miller (guitar). Special guests include singer/songwriter Joe Sumner as well as San Antonio-based Tex Mex band, The Last Bandoleros.

Sting's 12th solo studio album, 57th & 9th is his first rock/pop project in over a decade. The 10-song collection represents a wide range of Sting's musical and songwriting styles from the raucous, guitar-driven first single, "I Can't Stop Thinking About You" to the ferocious, Road Warrior-style imagery of "Petrol Head" and the anthemic "50,000."

The album, produced by Martin Kierszenbaum, was recorded in just a few weeks with Sting's long-time collaborators Dominic Miller (guitar) and Vinnie Colaiuta (drums), as well as drummer Josh Freese (Nine Inch Nails, Guns n' Roses), guitarist Lyle Workman, and backing vocals by The Last Bandoleros.
