Sting’s ‘My Songs’ concerts are an exuberant and dynamic show featuring his most beloved songs, written throughout the 17-time Grammy Award winner’s illustrious career both with The Police and as a solo artist.
Following a sold out six-night residency at the London Palladium, My Songs was hailed “a masterclass” by The Times who said “Sting remains an undeniably skilled performer with a gold-plated back catalogue.”
A musical journey taking in hits like Fields of Gold, Shape of my Heart, Roxanne and Demolition Man, the concert was described as “a rare treat” by The Telegraph and saw Sting praised as “near peerless” by The Guardian with “sublime pop alchemy”. Fans can also expect to hear Englishman In New York, Every Breath You Take, Message In A Bottle and many more.
Peter Taylor, venue programmer at Scarborough OAT, said: “Sting is rightly regarded as one of the most influential musicians, songwriters and performers over the last 50 years. It is an incredible honour to be bringing his My Songs World Tour here.
“This tour has delighted fans around the world as Sting performs songs from across his amazing career, from his days in The Police right through his astonishingly successful solo career.
“This is undoubtedly going to be one of the highlights of the year and I urge fans to get their tickets early!”
Nicky Chance-Thompson DL, CEO of The Piece Hall Trust, said: “I’m so excited to be able to announce Sting as the first headliner for Live at The Piece Hall 2023. Securing an artist of his calibre builds perfectly on line-up of global superstars we played host to last year.
“Fans will absolutely love this concert which spans his full stellar repertoire with hit after hit, and I certainly can’t wait to welcome him to our iconic building.”
