The Cherrytree Music Company and Live Nation announced today that following a European summer tour, Sting & Shaggy will bring their dynamic and vibrant joint live show to a variety of North American venues this fall. Performing in intimate clubs and theatres, the iconic artists will combine their bands to play songs from their recently-released, island-flavored collaborative album, 44/876 (A&M/Interscope Records), and to collaborate on 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.”
Sting & Shaggy: The 44/876 Tour will make stops at various venues along the way including Atlanta’s Tabernacle, The Theater at MGM National Harbor in Washington, Chicago’s Aragon Ballroom, plus additional Fillmore plays in both Philadelphia and Denver, before culminating at Harrah's Resort SoCal on October 16.
Every online ticket purchase includes one physical or digital copy of Sting and Shaggy’s album, 44/876. Members of the official Sting.com fan club will have the opportunity to purchase tickets in advance beginning Monday, May 21. Please visit www.sting.com/tour for details.
Sting and Shaggy initially joined forces to record a new song, "Don't Make Me Wait" (which debuted at #1 on Billboard’s digital reggae singles chart), as a tribute to the Caribbean sounds that influenced them both and ended up recording an entire album full of joyful and uplifting, melodic music. With its title referencing their respective telephone country codes (44 for the UK, Sting’s birthplace and 876 for Jamaica, Shaggy’s homeland), 44/876 honors the duo’s deep-rooted love for Jamaica: Shaggy’s birthplace, and where Sting penned such classics as “Every Breath You Take.”
Along with continuing each artist’s exploration of reggae and its transcendent rhythms, songs like “Don’t Make Me Wait,” “Morning is Coming,” and “Gotta Get Back My Baby” reveal Sting and Shaggy’s shared passion for creating timeless music that defies expectation.
Sting and Shaggy will be joined on the 44/876 Tour by Sting’s players Dominic Miller (guitar), Josh Freese (drums) and Rufus Miller (guitar) as well as Shaggy’s band members Melissa Musique (backing vocals), Gene Noble (backing vocals) and Kevon Webster (keyboards).
The tour is produced by RZO Entertainment and promoted by Live Nation Global Touring.
