Performing both separately and together, the iconic artists will play selections from their island-flavored, collaborative album, 44/876, as well as melding their bands to explore 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.”
The pair initially joined creative forces to record their new song "Don't Make Me Wait" - a tribute to the Caribbean sounds that influenced them both - and ended up recording an entire album full of joy, melody and uplifting music.
They'll be extending this collaboration to the road with a combined band including Sting’s players Dominic Miller (guitar), Josh Freese (drums) and Rufus Miller (guitar)and Shaggy’s musicians Monique Musique (backing vocals), Gene Noble (backing vocals) and Kevon Webster (keyboards).
