17-time Grammy Award-winning composer and singer-songwriter Sting will perform at the iconic Odeon of Herodes Atticus, beneath the slopes of the ancient Acropolis on Thursday, September 30, and Friday, October 1, 2021.
Throughout his illustrious career, Sting has sold close to 100 million albums from his work as the lead singer of The Police and as a solo artist; and now he returns to Athens to perform two concerts, which are part of his worldwide “My Songs Tour,” that began in the United States in 2019.
Joining Sting on stage at both shows is his musician son, Joe Summer, frontman of the rock band Fiction Plane; as well as a set of talented musicians including Dominic Miller (guitar), Josh Freese (drums), Rufus Miller (guitar), Kevon Webster (keyboard), Shane Sager (harmonica) with Melissa Musique and Gene Noble (backing vocals).
Sting is arriving in Greece from Italy, having performed at the Teatro Antico in Taormina, Sicily on Monday evening; and now fans in Athens can expect to be taken on a “musical journey through time” as the “My Songs Tour” features his most popular hits, written throughout Sting’s career both with The Police and as a solo artist.
Sting will be belting out songs including “Every Breath You Take,” “Roxanne,” and “Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic,” as well as “Fields of Gold,” “Desert Rose,” “If I Ever Lose My Faith In You” and “Brand New Day.”
The singer’s concerts in Athens will be extra special as they will be the final performances of his worldwide tour for 2021 (they will start again in March 2022) and it also coincides with Sting’s milestone 70th birthday on Saturday, October 2nd.
