07.17.09 Québec City Summer Festival - Ticket Update...



As previously announced Sting will be performing at the Québec City Summer Festival in Canada on Saturday, July 18. Access to the festival - all 11 days of shows - costs just ( if booked at the special advance price). The tickets can be purchased between June 18-July 19 at the 37 Metro supermarkets in the greater Quebec City.

Badges will also be available at all Hydro-Quebec booths on all the Festival sites for the duration of the Festival.

Please note that on-line ticket purchases for the festival are not available.

We are still working with the festival organisers in the hope of securing some tickets for members but we do not yet know if we will be successful so our best advice at this time is to assume we may not get tickets and those wishing to attend the show may need to make their own arrangements to secure tickets. We will keep you informed of any progress we make.

In addition to discussing his passion for music, Sting puts his own musical mind to the test when he enters an fMRI (functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging) machine to have his brain scanned. Inspired by Dr. Daniel Levitin's book, Sting undergoes tests to find out how music affects him on a physical and emotional level. Using state-of-the-art technology, THE MUSICAL BRAIN demonstrates how Sting responds to various types of music - complex and simple - and what his musical brain reveals about him...

Perhaps the plea was not too surprising from Sting, the former teacher who became one of the biggest rock stars the UK has produced. But no-one in the audience at the Hay festival doubted the passion in his voice when he warned against scaling down music lessons for children...
