Sting Debuting New Music in NYC Residency
Sting will perform 10 nights at Manhattan's Anspacher Theater in benefit of the city's Public Theatre. Pollstar reported that the shows at the 250-seat venue will mark "the first and only time Sting performs songs from his new album The Last Ship." The shows will run on Sept. 25th, 26th, 27th, 28th and October 1st, 4th, 5th, 6th, 8th, and 9th. The general on sale for the shows starts on July 14th.
As usual, Sting will play a special show for fan club members on October 2nd in celebration of his 62nd birthday. 100 fans will receive free tickets to the show through a special lottery.
Sting said in a statement announcing the shows, "The Public Theater, a New York institution committed to supporting all of the city's distinct communities, was a natural fit to perform this material that is, at its core, about the importance of community."
