The presale for Montreal, in addition to the other shows announced March 2nd (see above grid), will be available to fan club members tomorrow, Wednesday, March 10.

Backed by the 45-piece Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra and a quartet consisting of longtime Sting guitarist Dominic Miller, David Cossin (multi-percussionist), Jo Lawry (vocalist) and Ira Coleman (bassist), Sting's new tour will see him performing his most celebrated songs re-imagined for symphonic arrangement. Among the reinterpreted selections with brand new orchestrations are fan-favorites such as "Roxanne," "Next To You," "Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic" and "Every Breath You Take," along with notable songs from Sting's enduring solo career, including "Englishman in New York," "Fragile," "Russians," "If I Ever Lose My Faith in You," "Fields of Gold," and "Desert Rose."

Legacy members will have a one hour advance window when presales open at 10am local with the presale then being opened up to all members at 11am local.

"I was brought up in the '50s, when there was only one radio station really - BBC Radio - so you could hear everything, from Beethoven's Fifth to music hall to the Beatles. I grew up with the taste that music was universal and not necessarily this ghettoized... this tribal ghetto. Although there are qualitative differences between music forms, and certainly skill differences, it's basically the same building blocks. And so I approach music that way. I have a great deal of respect for classical music - and awe, sometimes. Nonetheless I see it as a language that I can communicate in, and certainly be reached by..."

Musician, actor, activist, philanthropist, tantric sex enthusiast and probably everything else you associate with being awesome, Sting has done it all. The man is simply put, a chameleon. But even for someone with his versatility, his current project sounds like a total mind trip. Twin Spirits is the re-imagining of one of German composer Robert Schumann's most celebrated works. It's Sting (a classical music enthusiast) and his wife Trudie Styler, onstage, together as Schumann and the piano prodigy Clara respectively, reenacting the process of falling in love...
