Matthew's album duet partners include Sting on his soulful classic 'Let Your Soul Be Your Pilot' (from his 1996 album, Mercury Falling). AOL will premiere the audio of the duet on May 6th followed by the premiere of Matthew's incredible AOL Sessions performance on May 10th, including key tracks from the album http://music.aol.com/sessions.

Before Sting would take his "Symphonicities" tour to Eastern Europe this summer, he needed a tune-up. So he chose the world famous Apollo Theater for last night's show - with an audience comprising fan club members, family and friends.

They were almost all women, and they had their dancing shoes on. The show - with nearly 40 musicians crammed onto the stage including virtuoso guitarist Dominic Miller and knock out vocalist Jo Lawry - pretty much reproduced the same set Sting did last summer at the Metropolitan Opera and on his CD, "Live in Berlin..."
Show Date: April 28, 2011
Location: New York City, NY
