Besides, Sting’s son Joe Sumner and Percy Cardona, accordionist for The Last Bandoleros, will also participate in the show.
"Sting is bringing a full-production show to Moscow, which includes sound and video equipment, lights and stage design, so the Moscow audience will see the same show that is put on in other countries in the world tour," head of the organizing company Ildar Bakeev said.
In November 2016, Sting released his 12th studio album and set out on a world tour in support of it on February 1, 2017. To date, Sting has already appeared in 59 cities in North, Central and South America, Europe and Asia.
Not only is Sting a singer and a songwriter, but he is also an actor and public figure. In 1977, he launched his career with the rock group The Police together with Stewart Copeland and Andy Summers. They released five chart-topping albums, received six Grammy Awards and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
In 1985, Sting chose to go solo, eventually earning ten Grammys, two Brit Awards, a Golden Globe Award, an Emmy Award and three nominations for the Academy Awards.
Thanks to both his solos and performances with The Police, Sting has sold over 100 million records.
