The 44/876 Tour took Europe by storm this summer as Sting & Shaggy's island-inspired music both delighted and surprised fans across the continent. The shows were so popular that a visit to Eastern Europe has already been announced for November. In the meantime, the duo will tour North and South America with a band comprised of Sting’s longtime collaborators Dominic Miller (guitar), Josh Freese (drums) and Rufus Miller (guitar), as well as Shaggy’s band members Melissa Musique (backing vocals), Gene Noble (backing vocals) and Kevon Webster (keyboards).
Next Friday, September 14 in Jacksonville, FL they’ll kick off a 25-date tour leg that ends October 23 in Santiago, Chile.
While many of the concerts have sold out, tickets for certain cities remain available from www.ticketmaster.com and the usual outlets. There are also a number of VIP packages available that offer early entry to general admission venues, as well as gold and silver hot seat packages. Visit the Tour Page for more details!
