Renowned English bassist and rock icon, Sting, is set to return to Philadelphia for two special performances alongside the Philadelphia Orchestra on March 8 and 9, 2024. Sting, who recently co-hosted the One Fine Day festival at the Mann Center, previously collaborated with the orchestra in 2010.
The concerts, to be held at the Kimmel Center’s Verizon Hall, will feature symphonic renditions of Sting’s timeless hits. Drawing inspiration from his 2010 album “Symphonicities,” which reimagined classics like “Roxanne” and “Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic” with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the shows promise a captivating fusion of rock and orchestral music.
Sting, now 72, has continued to evolve his music, releasing an album of reinterpreted compositions titled “My Songs” in 2019 and a new album, “The Bridge,” in 2021. He remains committed to surprising both himself and his audience with unexpected projects.
Orchestra members and fan club members can access a presale on October 11 via Sting.com, while the general public can purchase tickets starting October 16 at kimmelculturalcampus.org. Don’t miss this unique musical experience!
