In support of Sting: 25 Years, the recently released box set collection, Back to Bass finds Sting performing songs spanning his dynamic and enduring solo career, from his 1985 debut ‘The Dream of the Blue Turtles‘ to his latest release, ‘Live in Berlin‘, plus a selection of The Police‘s greatest hits. Highlights include the Grammy winners “Brand New Day” and “If I Ever Lose My Faith in You” plus fan-favourites “Englishman in New York,” “Desert Rose” and “Roxanne”. Sting will be joined by a band including his longtime guitarist Dominic Miller, Rufus Miller (guitarist), Vinnie Colaiuta (drummer), Peter Tickell (electric fiddle), and Jo Lawry (vocalist).
The definitive box set, Sting: 25 Years, captures for the first time both the highlights and rarities of Sting‘s enduring solo career. This collection contains three CDs, all re-mastered exclusively for this set and personally curated by Sting, as well as a previously unreleased live DVD, Rough, Raw & Unreleased, filmed at New York City‘s Irving Plaza. The discs are housed in a hardcover book featuring rare photos, complete lyrics, and newly written commentary by Sting. The Best of 25 Years is also available as a double disc.
