Sting is going on tour in support of his new album ’57th and 9th’ that fell November 11th, 2016. This world tour, reaching North American and Europe, has already added dates since its announcement because of the overwhelming demand. The name of the album is named after the NYC studio location where the album was recorded.
’57th & 9th Tour’ includes The Last Bandoleros and guests Joe Sumner. It hits cities including Austin, San Francisco, Chicago, and New York.
The well-known bassist from the band The Police, Sting, has created an iconic solo career over the years. With acting experience, twelve solo studio albums, a love of humankind, and more, he continues to be relevant to audiences of all ages. Sting has also performed in Broadway productions. His vocation unpredictability is his most well-known characteristic. Sting is constantly transforming, growing, attempting whatever is in his path. Even the possibility of a reunion seemed unpredictable at the time, when The Police reunited for a tour. His records have dipped into performances of previous music and a ton of genres: jazz, rock, new wave, pop, and resurrections. In his recent New York Times interview, Sting said:
“When I listen to music, I want to be surprised. When I compose music, I want to lay a surprise within a certain number of bars. And then, when I choose to do the music I want to present to the public, again, I want to surprise them.”
Sting has the ability to continually morph throughout his career, surpassing obstacles and expectations of the “rock stars” identity he had left long ago. He has returned to that individuality but with an alternative mindset, a distinct time in his life. There’s no sense he will be slowing down anytime soon, and the world can just wait to see what Sting will pull out of his Genius Jar.
