Sting is currently on the Back to Bass tour throughout Europe, the UK and South Africa in support of the recently released box set collection, 25 Years, which garnered a rave review from Keyboard Magazine in the April 2012 issue: "What I've learned over the years is that miracles don't happen and what works is the process," Sting writes in the liner notes for '25 Years', his three-CD-plus-DVD solo career retrospective. The process he speaks of shines in full, recorded glory here, with 55 tracks evincing his continued quest for aural eloquence.

A single spotlight, above a microphone centre stage, forms the eerie backdrop to tonight's show, with the seated crowd waiting in anticipation induced silence. The sixteen time Grammy Award winner may be sixty years of age these days, but he shows no sign of slowing down with his hectic touring schedule around the globe. With his 5-piece backing band sneaking into place to start up the show with 'All This Time', it's not long before Sting strides on stage, bass in hand and a wide smile. The lyricly dark track, combined with uplifting instrumentals, a conflict which forms much of the songwriters work, has fans whooping along, and it's just the start of showcasing the skills of his incredible backing band...
