The guitar-driven 57th & 9th Tour, which launched in North America in February this year, has already visited more than fifty cities of Europe, Central and South America and Asia. It is taking the world by rave reviews from fans and critics alike. The Daily Telegraph: “At the heart of what Sting does is a supreme songwriting talent, flowing melodies, audacious grooves and meaningful lyrics delivered by a master musician who seems to get a genuine sense of accomplishment from performing at the highest possible level. This show deserved a badge of honour."
Sting’s twelfth solo studio album, 57th & 9th, his first rock/pop project in over a decade, was released November 11 on A&M/Interscope Records. The ten-song collection represents a wide range of Sting’s musical and songwriting styles from the raucous, guitar-driven first single, “I Can’t Stop Thinking About You” to the ferocious, Road Warrior-style imagery of “Petrol Head” and the anthemic “50,000.” The album, produced by Martin Kierszenbaum, was recorded in just a few weeks with Sting’s long-time collaborators Dominic Miller (guitar) and Vinnie Colaiuta (drums), as well as drummer Josh Freese (Nine Inch Nails, Guns n’ Roses), guitarist Lyle Workman and backing vocals by the San Antonio-based Tex-Mex band The Last Bandoleros.
The 57th & 9th World Tour is promoted by Live Nation Global Touring, produced by Cherrytree Management and RZO Entertainment. The local promoter in Moscow is Ildar Bakeev Entertainment.
