Following the recently released and highly anticipated rock / pop album 57th & 9th by Sting, Cherrytree Management, Live Nation and the Würth Forum have announced a festival starring Sting on 23 July 2017 at the Würth Open Air in Künzelsau-Gaisbach.
On the 57th & 9th tour Sting is accompanied by a three-piece band consisting of his longtime guitarist Dominic Miller, Josh Freese (drums) and Rufus Miller (guitar).
Ticket sales for the newly announced show of the 57th & 9th Tour will begin on Tuesday, 13 December at 10:00am.
Sting’s twelfth solo studio album, 57th & 9th, his first rock/pop project in over a decade, was released 11 November 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.
