Sting back to bass tour
It’s that time of year again for Sting fans to rejoice as this legendary artist is set to do another live tour, the Back to Bass Tour (clever Sting with his play on words with back to basics) which hits North America start in October and runs into December. The Back to Bass tour starts in Boston on October 21 and ends in Vancouver, Canada on December 8. The tour is in celebration of the 25th anniversary of Sting’s solo career and will highlight his best tracks in a way he has never played them before, “back to bass”. The tour coincides with a 25th Anniversary box set which will launch later this month and should be a refreshing live experience for long time Sting fans, just don’t expect it to be cheap if historical prices (see below) are any indication of what to expect.
