Following sold out concerts across North America and Europe,Sting’s 57 th & 9 th Tour is taking the world by storm with rave reviews from fans and critics alike.


Sting is coming to Croatia on July 26 th , joined by a 3-piece band plus special guests –  Joe Sumner and the Croatian pop rock band Buđenje.

Joe Sumner has been honing his solo work for the past five years. While simultaneously fronting rock band Fiction Plane and pushing boundaries in the tech space with his app Vyclone, Joe has been stripping back all that he finds inauthentic. Starting with just his voice and an acoustic guitar, he writes heartfelt, playful and genuine songs that are never quite finished.
"Every time I play a song I leave at least a few parts of it completely open to  improvisation", he says of his loose and collaborative performing style.
"After you play a song fifty times I think it should get better, not just stay the same!"

This open-minded attitude comes in part from his extremely varied musical experiences - from touring with acts that he literally calls family (The Police, Sting) to artists  like Snoop Dogg or singing in a modern opera and writing hits for other European artists. Joe also  teaches highly-acclaimed workshops at music schools focusing on the emotional pressures of songwriting. Joe Sumner`s debut solo single & Jellybean; was released in January 2017.

The guitar-driven rock tour, which launched in North America in February and is currently in Europe to be followed by concerts in Central & South America and Asia before returning to Europe for select summer festival appearances has just confirmed 3 additional North American dates this September. According to the latest information, there are limited tickets  left for the only Sting concert in our region. For complete ticketing information visit

Sting’s twelfth solo studio album, 57 th & 9 th , his first rock/pop project in over a decade, was released November 11 on &AM/Interscope Records. The ten-song collection represents a wide range of Sting’s musical and songwriting styles from the raucous, guitar-driven first single, “I Can’t Stop Thinking About You” to the ferocious, Road Warrior-style imagery of “Petrol Head” and the anthemic “50,000.” The album, produced by Martin Kierszenbaum, was recorded in just a few weeks with Sting’s long-time collaborators Dominic Miller (guitar)and Vinnie Colaiuta (drums), as well as drummer Josh Freese (Nine Inch Nails, Guns n’Roses), guitarist Lyle Workman and backing vocals by the San Antonio-based Tex-Mex band The Last Bandoleros.
