Sting all set to play Bangkok

10 Dec 2012

British singing icon Sting is all set to play Bangkok’s Impact Arena on Wednesday evening. The doors open at the arena in the Muang Thong Thani venue complex at 19:00. Sting and his five-piece support band are scheduled to take the stage at 20:30.

The Bangkok date is part of Sting’s smash-hit Back to Bass tour. The current section of this tour began in Strasbourg on 7 November. Sting has already played Hong Kong and Manila this month. After the Bangkok gig, he is due to play in Singapore and then travel on to Jakarta for the final concert of the tour this Saturday.

Sting’s accompanying band features Jo Lawry on backing vocals, Dominic Miller on guitar, keyboard player David Sancious, drummer Vinnie Colaiuta and fiddler Peter Tickell. Some tickets are still available for the concert.

Music fans wishing to take the chance of seeing one of the world’s finest singers perform can purchase tickets on ThaiticketMajor’s website or at designated outlets. Standard tickets begin at 2,000 Baht and gold package premium tickets are 6,000 Baht.

Despite spending more than a quarter of a century as a solo artist, Sting is better remembered by some for his time as the frontman of iconic 1980s band the Police. Since embarking on his solo career, the Newcastle born singer has released 13 albums and won a plethora of awards including 10 Grammies.
