Sting has lined up 10 shows this fall to benefit New York City’s Public Theater. Taking place at the venue’s intimate 250-seater Anspacher Theater, the shows will be the first and only time Sting performs songs from his new album The Last Ship.
Scheduled to be released Sept. 24, The Last Ship shares its title with Sting’s upcoming play premiering next year. Both the album and play were inspired by the shipbuilding community of Wallsend, England, where he was born and raised.
“The Public Theater, a New York institution committed to supporting all of the city’s distinct communities, was a natural fit to perform this material that is, at its core, about the importance of community,” Sting said.
As you can probably imagine, the folks at the Public Theater are very excited about hosting Sting this fall.
“Sting is one of the great artists of our time, a brilliant songwriter who is also a model of activist commitment,” Public Theater’s artistic director Oskar Eustis said. “The Last Ship is shaping up to be a masterpiece, both an elegy for and a celebration of the working class life of the Newcastle shipyards. The Public is honored to call Sting a friend and thrilled to be hosting these benefit concerts.” To read more on this article and how to purchase tickets click here..
