Following their critically-acclaimed 2018 tour, Sting and Shaggy will kick off the summer by bringing an intimate and exclusive shows as part of the The 44/876 Tour.
The joint live show finds the two Grammy-award winning artists combining their bands to perform songs from their island-flavored album, 44/876 and collaborating on each other’s most celebrated hits such as “Every Breath You Take,” “Englishman In New York,” “Message In A Bottle,” “It Wasn’t Me,” “Mr. Boombastic” and “Angel.”
Sting and Shaggy will be joined by 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).
Their collaborative, island-influenced album, 44/876, draws from the many surprising connections at the heart of their music and recently received a Grammy nomination for Best Reggae Album. With its title referencing their home country codes, the record first and foremost honors the duo’s love for Jamaica: Shaggy’s homeland, and the place where Sting penned such classics as The Police’s “Every Breath You Take.”
Sting & Shaggy will perform at O2 Academy Birmingham on Friday 24th May, and we have two tickets to the show to give away.
Competition closes Friday 17th May.
