Sting & Shaggy
Following a European summer tour, Sting & Shaggy will bring their dynamic and vibrant joint live show to a variety of North American venues this fall, including a stop at Santa Barbara Bowl. Performing in intimate clubs and theatres, the iconic artists will combine their bands to play songs from their recently-released, island-flavored collaborative album, 44/876 (A&M/Interscope Records), and to collaborate 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 initially joined forces to record a new song, "Don't Make Me Wait" (which debuted at #1 on Billboard’s digital reggae singles chart), as a tribute to the Caribbean sounds that influenced them both and ended up recording an entire album full of joyful and uplifting, melodic music. With its title referencing their respective telephone country codes (44 for the UK, Sting’s birthplace and 876 for Jamaica, Shaggy’s homeland), 44/876 honors the duo’s deep-rooted love for Jamaica: Shaggy’s birthplace, and where Sting penned such classics as “Every Breath You Take.”
Sting and Shaggy will be joined on the 44/876 Tour by Sting’s players 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).
Every online ticket purchase includes one physical or digital copy of Sting and Shaggy’s album, 44/876. You will receive an additional email with instructions on how to redeem your album. US/CAN Residents only.
