Tickets go on sale today for two never-to-be repeated concerts by Sting at the Sage, Gateshead. He will perform songs from ‘The Last Ship,’ his latest album and new Broadway musical of the same name, on 24 and 25 April 2015 to benefit the Sage Gateshead 10th Birthday Appeal. These will be the only UK performances of their kind and are both supported by Cunard, which has historic links to the shipyards of the Tyne.
Sting will be joined onstage at Sage Gateshead by some of the region’s best loved musicians including fiddle and Northumbrian pipe player Kathryn Tickell, and The Wilson Family from Billingham, Co. Durham.
Tickets are sale to the general public 10.00 am at www.sagegateshead.com and also at Sage Gateshead’s ticket office on 0191 443 4661. Tickets cost £49.50, £75 and £85. VIP packages are also available, and this top tier will include VIP seating and a pre-show meet and greet with Sting (TBC).
