“At the heart of what Sting does is a supreme songwriting talent, flowing melodies, audacious grooves and meaningful lyrics delivered by a master musician who seems to get a genuine sense of accomplishment from performing at the highest possible level.
This show deserved a badge of honour." - The Telegraph, UK
“Sting isn't just a performer who comes to put on a show. He is an artist who arrives to create art on the stage.” - Alto Voltaje, Puerto Rico
“Sting showcases versatility, depth and enduring rock power at ACL Live. He proved he still has the chops to deliver a thrilling set of strobe enhanced, gut punch rock ‘n’ roll.” - Austin 360
"The set pulsated though the overwhelming database of new songs, solo material, and classic Police hits. Sting is a universal story teller, built from the stuff of what they say legends are made of” - Vancouver Weekly
Sting’s twelfth solo studio album, 57th & 9th, his first rock/pop project in over a decade, was released November 11 on A&M/Interscope Records. The ten-song collection represents a wide range of Sting’s musical and songwriting styles from the raucous, guitar-driven first single, “I Can’t Stop Thinking About You” to the ferocious, Road Warrior-style imagery of “Petrol Head” and the anthemic “50,000.” The album, produced by Martin Kierszenbaum, was recorded in just a few weeks with Sting’s long-time collaborators Dominic Miller (guitar) and Vinnie Colaiuta (drums), as well as drummer Josh Freese (Nine Inch Nails, Guns n’ Roses), guitarist Lyle Workman and backing vocals by the San Antonio-based Tex-Mex band The Last Bandoleros.
