Featuring songs from his solo career as well as from his time with The Police, Sting will be performing with special guest Joe Sumner.

Including Malaysia in the lineup for his ‘My Songs’ world tour, Sting will be returning – after almost two decades – in March 2023, and tickets go on sale this week!

The rock legend is set to perform the KL Convention Centre Plenary Hall on 20 March, featuring songs from his career as a solo artist as well as from his years with former band, The Police. Long-time fans will be happy to know that English singer/songwriter Joe Sumner will also be joining Sting as a special guest for the show.

Tickets will go on sale on 28 October 2022 at 10am local time via Go Live Asia, after a Sting fan club pre-sale on 26 October, and a Live Nation member pre-sale on 27 October. Ticket prices range from RM398 to RM1,288, not inclusive of ticket fee and booking charges.

Sting will be performing a five-date schedule in Japan with stops in Tokyo, Nagoya, and Hiroshima before making his way to Malaysia.

Sting sold his entire songwriting catalogue to Universal Music Publishing Group in a deal earlier this year in February, which include the rights to all Sting’s solo songs and the songs he wrote for The Police. The deal was rumoured to be worth over $250million, with Sting himself explaining, “It is absolutely essential to me that my career’s body of work have a home where it is valued and respected – not only to connect with longtime fans in new ways but also to introduce my songs to new audiences, musicians, and generations.”

Sting, who is due to return to the studio this year, also shared his regret over his 2007 reunion with Police bandmates Andy Summers and Stuart Copeland, which resulted in a world tour.

“At the time I labelled the tour an exercise in nostalgia. That was simply how I felt and is still how I feel today,” he explained. “I think it’s OK to be honest about your feelings and that was the way it went for me.

“That’s not a slight on the people I was with or the way things panned out, it’s just how I saw it by the end, and let’s be honest, that’s not how I wanted to remember it.”
