It was one of the great concert events of late summer 2018. Iconic Sting on our epic Odeon of Herodes Atticus stage. The heavens opened for awhile; the audience got drenched, but the show went on—and it was a cracker. Clearly, the former The Police frontman and writer-composer-activist has fond memories too. He’s headed back to Athens to celebrate his 70th birthday with an encore performance (two, actually) beneath the ancient Acropolis.
This time round, the versatile artist—who was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2003—will have his muso son Joe Sumner by his side.
Sting’s latest European whip-round hangs off his most recent album, My Songs, which finds the British pop legend reinventing famous tunes from across his four decade career, both as a solo artist and member of The Police, from Roxanne to Fields of Gold.
