In support of his forthcoming box set collection Sting: 25 Years, slated for release on September 27th, Sting will embark on the Back to Bass Tour this fall to celebrate the 25th anniversary of his solo career… performing all the hits, stripped down, as they haven't been played in years, backed by a 5-piece band in an intimate theatre setting.

Back to Bass finds Sting performing songs spanning his dynamic and enduring solo career, from his 1985 debut The Dream Of The Blue Turtles to his latest release, Live in Berlin, plus a selection of The Police’s greatest hits. Highlights include the Grammy® winners "Brand New Day" and "If I Ever Lose My Faith In You" plus fan-favorites "Englishman In New York," "Desert Rose" and "Roxanne." Sting will be joined by a band including his longtime guitarist Dominic Miller, Rufus Miller (guitarist), Vinnie Colaiuta (drummer), Peter Tickell (electric fiddle), and Jo Lawry(vocalist).

To commemorate the 25th anniversary of Sting's solo career, the definitive box set Sting: 25 Years, was released on September 27, 2011. This collection captures for the first time both the highlights and rarities of Sting’s enduring solo career and contains three CDs, all re-mastered exclusively for this set and personally curated by Sting, as well as a previously unreleased live DVD, Rough, Raw & Unreleased, filmed at New York City’s Irving Plaza. The discs are housed in a hardcover book featuring rare photos, complete lyrics, and newly written commentary by Sting. In addition, Sting: The Best of 25 Years (single disc) will be released on October 18, 2011.

As previously announced, Sting’s Back To Bass tour will appear at the DAR Constitution Hall in Washington, DC this fall. The first performance on October 29th was an immediate sell-out, with a second and final show put on sale this morning. Due to a scheduling conflict, this second show – previously scheduled for October 30th, will now take place on Thursday, November 10th. Persons who purchased tickets to the October 30th performance should retain their tickets as they will be honoured at the newly scheduled concert on Thursday, November 10th. Persons requiring a refund may do so at point of purchase. There is no change to the October 29th performance...

Answer the following trivia question for the chance to win an autographed copy of Sting's album Songs From The Labyrinth! For years, Sting was asked to perform the music of 16th century English composer John Dowland. The idea finally came to fruition after he met the Bosnian lute player Edin Karamazov, who worked with Sting extensively on the project. Sting calls Dowland "the archetype for the traveling musician."
