Nice!
Since there will be Europe summer touring in 2013 again, please please consider some German dates. Germany was treated very nicely on the Back To Bass 1st leg, but sadly ignored on the 2012 summer tour and the current wrap up of the Back To Bass tour. Would absolutely love to see Sting again in 2013, maybe even with David Sancious?!

Woooowww!!!!!!!
Hope to see more dates for next year!!!!!!!
Life is fleeting, and humans are but a speck in the vastness of time and space. This reality again struck Filipinos when floods caused by typhoon "Pablo" swept away precious lives merely a few days before the Manila leg of Sting's "Back to Bass" tour. Thus Sting's last song was a fitting way to pay tribute to the victims. "Tomorrow's rain will wash the stains away, but something in our minds will always stay," Sting sang, compelling the Araneta Coliseum to at least subdued excitement out of respect for the dead. The solemn lyrics of 'Fragile', which speak of mortality, violence and war, capped a memorable concert punctuated by the performances of musical greats such as drummer Vinnie Colaiuta, who Sting candidly referred to as "possibly the greatest drummer in the world," Sting's longtime guitarist Dominic Miller, violinist Peter Tickell (who also played the mandolin), vocalist Jo Lawry, and keyboardist David Sancious...

The man’s still got it. That is, that intangible factor that separates regular musicians from living legends. Long ago, the man born Gordon Sumner cemented his superstar status by amassing one hit after another in a career that has spanned decades. And even after taking a long sabbatical from his rock persona - choosing to pursue symphonic and new-age projects in his time - at the HKCEC in his return to Hong Kong with his Back to Bass tour, Sting showed that, after all this time, yes... he's still got it. Pulling the expected double duty of singer and bassist, he performed a host of his classic monstrous hits permanently etched in our brains both from his early days with The Police and as a solo artist. Backed by a five-piece band, including a rocking violinist, he kicked off the night with 'If I Ever Lose My Faith In You' and 'Every Little Thing She Does is Magic', followed by an all-hit roster stuffed with tunes that have stood the test of time...


(Photo courtesy of Mix FM). Gordon Matthew Thomas Sumner - better known as Sting - performed an exceptional show Wednesday night at BIEL. The musician, songwriter and singer took over the Beirut stage with his band for more than two hours. For one night only and for the second time in Beirut, Sting performed some of his greatest tunes. The venue echoed with 'Message in a Bottle', 'Roxanne', 'End of the Game', and 'Hounds of Winter'. With the first notes of 'Englishman in New York', the audience hailed and began singing along with the chorus - which appeared to make the star emotional. Like a human wave, the spectators sang and danced to the song as though in a trance...
