For the first and only time, Sting will perform songs from his new album, The Last Ship, for 10 concerts to benefit The Public Theater in New York City from September 25 – October 9. An evening of music and storytelling in the intimate, 260-seat Anspacher Theater, these performances will offer unique insight into the creative process of both the new album, to be released September 24 (internationally on September 23), and his forthcoming play of the same name, premiering in 2014. All proceeds will benefit The Public Theater.
In keeping with Sting's longstanding tradition of hosting special events for his official fan club, in addition to these 10 performances, 100 Sting.com members will receive free tickets, selected via lottery, to attend a very special concert in celebration of his birthday on Wednesday, October 2 at The Public Theater.
