Following sold out concerts across North America, Europe, South America and Mexico, Sting’s 57th & 9th World Tour comes to Romania. The world-renowned singer-songwriter will give a show at Sala Polivalenta in Cluj-Napoca, Romania on 17 October. For this long-awaited performance, Sting will be accompanied by a 3-piece band including his longtime guitarist, Dominic Miller, Josh Freese (drums) and Rufus Miller (guitar) with special guest Joe Sumner, as well as accordion player, Percy Cardona, who regularly performs with The Last Bandoleros.
The guitar-driven 57th & 9th Tour, which launched in North America in February this year, has already visited more than fifty cities of Europe, Central and South America and Asia. It is taking the world by rave reviews from fans and critics alike.
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.
