Ready yourself as British singer-songwriter Sting brings My Songs Tour to Manila on October 2, 2019 at the Araneta Coliseum, Quezon City. This in support of his thirteenth solo studio album of the same title released last May.
Sting (Gordon Sumner)—a composer, singer-songwriter, actor, author, and activist—was born in Newcastle, England before moving to London in 1977 to form The Police with Stewart Copeland and Andy Summers.
The band was able to release five studio albums, earned six Grammy Awards and two Brits, and was inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2003.
As one of the world’s most distinctive solo artists, Sting has received additional 12 Grammy Awards, two Brits, one Golden Globe, one Emmy, Billboard Magazine’s Century Award, and MusiCares 2004 Person of the Year. He has also gained four Oscar nominations (including 2017’s nomination for The Empty Chair from Jim: The James Foley Story) and one TONY nomination.
Also a member of the Songwriters Hall of Fame, he has received the Kennedy Center Honors, The American Music Award of Merit, and The Polar Music Prize. Sting has been awarded Honorary Doctorates of Music by the University of Northumbria (1992), Berklee College of Music (1994), University of Newcastle upon Tyne (2006), and Brown University on its 250th Commencement ceremony (2018).
Throughout his illustrious career, Sting has sold close to 100 million albums from his combined work with The Police and as a solo artist.
Sting’s world tour, which is currently ongoing throughout Europe, features his most beloved songs. Fans can expect to hear from the 18-time Grammy Award winner the songs Englishman In New York, Fields of Gold, Shape of My Heart, Every Breath You Take, Roxanne, and Message In A Bottle—accompanied by an electric, rock ensemble.
Other Sting hits include Desert Rose, If You Love Somebody, Can’t Stand Losing You, Fragile, If I Ever Lose My Faith In You, Wrap Around Your Finger, Synchronicity, Spirits in The Material World, Demolition Man, King Of Pain, Driven To Tears, De Do Do Do, De Do Da Da, Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic, Russians, Fortress Around Your Finger, Someone To Watch Over Me, and more!
Sting first performed in Manila in December 2012 to bring his Back to Bass Tour.
