This is a dream come true for Sting fans. Sting will perform songs from his new album, The Last Ship in 10 concerts to benefit The Public Theater in the intimate, 260-seat Anspacher Theater (at The Public).
It's an evening of music and storytelling where Sting will offer unique insight into his creative process for both his new album of original material, his first in 10 years, to be released September 24, and his forthcoming play of the same name.
PublicTheater.org says, "Drawing inspiration from the shipbuilding community of Wallsend in the North East of England where he was born and raised, Sting has crafted both an entire world and a close-knit community of original characters. In celebration of the album, these intimate benefit concerts at The Public Theater will reveal Sting's influences behind the album through storytelling and visual projections paying homage to the traditional roots of the North East of England, with music from pub-like folk tunes to a wall of sound from Sting's full band."
Ticket prices range from $250 to $2500. The good new is, since it's a benefit the tickets are tax deductible!
