On the 57th & 9th Tour, Sting is joined by a 3-piece band including his longtime guitarist, Dominic Miller, plus Josh Freese (drums) and Rufus Miller (guitar) with backing vocals from Diego Navaira & Jerry Fuentes of The Last Bandoleros and Joe Sumner.
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.
57th & 9th is promoted by Live Nation Global Touring, produced by Cherrytree Management and RZO Entertainment. For complete tour and ticketing information visit: www.sting.com
