Sting’s My Songs concert is touted as an exuberant and dynamic show featuring his most beloved songs, written throughout the 17-time Grammy Award winner’s illustrious career, both with The Police and as a solo artist.

Following a sold out six-night residency at the London Palladium, My Songs was hailed “a masterclass” by The Times; “Sting remains an undeniably skilled performer with a gold-plated back catalogue”. A musical journey taking in hits like ‘Fields of Gold’, ‘Shape of my Heart’, ‘Roxanne’ and ‘Demolition Man’, the concert was described as “a rare treat” by The Telegraph and saw Sting praised as “near peerless” by The Guardian with “sublime pop alchemy”.

Fans can also expect to hear ‘Englishman In New York,’ ‘Every Breath You Take,’ ‘Message In A Bottle’ and many more.

On tour, Sting will be accompanied by an electric, rock ensemble. Special Guest Joe Sumner appears at all newly announced dates.
