The Cherrytree Music Company and Live Nation announced today that following a European summer tour, Sting & Shaggy will bring their dynamic and vibrant joint live show to a variety of North American venues this fall.  Performing in intimate clubs and theatres, the iconic artists will combine their bands to play songs from their recently-released, island-flavored collaborative album, 44/876 (A&M/Interscope Records), and to collaborate on each other’s most celebrated hits such as "Every Breath You Take," "Englishman In New York," "Message In A Bottle,” “It Wasn’t Me,” "Mr. Boombastic" and "Angel.” ‬‬‬‬
 
Kicking off in Miami ‪on September 15‬‬‬ at The Fillmore Miami Beach, Sting & Shaggy: The 44/876 Tour will make stops at various venues along the way including Atlanta’s Tabernacle, The Theater at MGM National Harbor in Washington, Chicago’s Aragon Ballroom, plus additional Fillmore plays in both Philadelphia and Denver, before culminating at The Wiltern in Los Angeles ‪on October 15‬‬‬ (full itinerary below).
 
Tickets will go on sale to the public ‪beginning Thursday, May 24 at 10am‬‬‬ local time(s) at www.ticketmaster.com and usual outlets. Every online ticket purchase includes one physical or digital copy of Sting and Shaggy’s album, 44/876. Members of the official ‪Sting.com‬‬‬ fan club will have the opportunity to purchase tickets in advance ‪beginning Monday, May 21.‬‬‬ Please visit www.sting.com/tour for details.
 
Sting and Shaggy initially joined forces to record a new song, "Don't Make Me Wait" (which debuted at #1 on Billboard’s digital reggae singles chart), as a tribute to the Caribbean sounds that influenced them both and ended up recording an entire album full of joyful and uplifting, melodic music. With its title referencing their respective telephone country codes (44 for the UK, Sting’s birthplace and 876 for Jamaica, Shaggy’s homeland), 44/876 honors the duo’s deep-rooted love for Jamaica: Shaggy’s birthplace, and where Sting penned such classics as “Every Breath You Take.” 
 
Along with continuing each artist’s exploration of reggae and its transcendent rhythms, songs like “Don’t Make Me Wait,” “Morning is Coming,” and “Gotta Get Back My Baby” reveal Sting and Shaggy’s shared passion for creating timeless music that defies expectation.
 
‪On May 25‬‬‪, 44/876: The Remixes will be released on A&M/Interscope Records, featuring an albums’ worth of remixes of songs from their album by a diverse range of artists including Chris Baio of Vampire Weekend, the Brazilian duo Tropkillaz, Cherry Cherry Boom Boom (Madonna, Lady Gaga) and Grammy-award winning producer Dave Audé, among others (track listing included below). ‬‬‬‬
 
Also on May 25, Sting and Shaggy will perform in NYC’s Central Park for Good Morning America’s Summer Concert series.  Fans interested in attending the free concert should arrive to Rumsey Playfield via the 72nd Street entrance on Fifth Avenue at 6AM when the park opens to the public.

Sting & Shaggy Fever
I can't even begin to share how beyond excited I am for this tour!!! Due to timing, I sadly missed out on last year's "57th & 9th." As a long time fan, that really plays with your soul, especially when you could use a good dose of the music and fellow fans who just get it. I'm back in & ready to live, love, & laugh it up with Sting & Shaggy down in SoBe! Already making plans with friends all over the state. From Jacksonville to SoBe, you can feel the island beats. The album has had me in that feel good mood, & the announcement of this show has just set in a goofy looking smile that will be firmly in place until the weekend of Sept. 15th...:-)
