10 New York shows for Sting
Sting will be holding court in the city come September.
The British rocker will perform 10 concerts in the 260-seat Anspacher Theater from Sept. 25 to Oct. 9, with all proceeds benefiting the Public Theater, the New York institution said Tuesday.
The former Police frontman will perform tracks from his next album “The Last Ship,” which drops Sept. 24. Sting’s play of the same name premieres next year.
“The Public Theater, a New York institution committed to supporting all of the city’s distinct communities, was a natural fit to perform this material that is, at its core, about the importance of community,” Sting said in a statement. Some free seats will be distributed daily through a lottery system.
