Sting & Shaggy Announce Joint North American Tour

Sting and Shaggy have just announced a 19-date joint tour in support of their first album together, called 44/876, which is named after the respective dialing codes for England and Jamaica. The pair kicks off the trek on September 15th at Miami’s Fillmore Miami Beach at The Jackie Gleason Theater and wraps things up on October 15th at L.A.’s Wiltern Theatre. On May 25th, Sting & Shaggy are set to perform as part of ABC’s “2018 Summer Concert Series” on Good Morning America at Rumsey Playfield in New York’s Central Park.

Sting and Shaggy will be joined on the 44/876 Tour by a combined band including Sting’s musicians Dominic Miller on guitar, Josh Freese on drums and Rufus Miller on guitar as well as Shaggy’s players Melissa Musique and Gene Noble on backing vocals, with Kevon Webster on keyboards.

  • We asked Sting what fans can expect musically from his upcoming joint gigs with Shaggy: [“In a kind of spontaneous way, it will be very integrated. It’s not as if Shaggy is going to do a set or I’m going to do a separate set. We’ll be doing some of Shaggy’s big hits and some of mine and some of the new material — but we will integrate it as much as possible. My band and I, we like to improvise, we like to throw it in the mix and see what happens.”] SOUNDCUE (:19 OC: . . . see what happens)
