Sting -- And an Orchestra! -- Coming to St. Louis



"An Evening with Sting, Performing His Most celebrated songs, featuring the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra" is the official title for the concert, which is Wednesday, June 23, at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater. (No word yet on how much lute the concert will feature.) Tickets are on sale to the general public on Monday, March 22, at 10 a.m. What's going to be performed? According to Sting's official website, "Selections will include fan-favorites such as 'Roxanne,' 'Next To You,' 'Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic' and 'Every Breath You Take,' to notable songs from Sting's enduring solo career - 'Englishman in New York,' 'Fragile,' 'Russians,', 'If I Ever Lose My Faith in You,' 'Fields of Gold,' and 'Desert Rose.'" (Fingers crossed over here for "Fortress Around Your Heart" and "The Soul Cages"!)
