Sting has announced a third Southeast Asia stop for March 2023 in Manila, the Philippines as part of his ongoing ‘My Songs’ world tour.
The concerts are set to take place at The Theatre at Solaire this March 17 and 18, with Fiction Plane frontman Joe Sumner accompanying the rock icon in a guest appearance. Tickets for the concerts will go on sale this December 9 via Ticketworld, though prices have yet to be released at the time of writing.

Sting has been tipped to perform material from his solo projects as well as songs from the iconic catalogue of The Police on the tour.
He sold his entire songwriting catalogue to Universal Music Publishing Group in a deal earlier this year in February. The deal, which was reportedly worth over $250 million, includes the rights to all of Sting’s solo songs and the songs he wrote for The Police. In a statement, Sting explained the rationale behind the move, saying, “It is absolutely essential to me that my career’s body of work have a home where it is valued and respected – not only to connect with longtime fans in new ways but also to introduce my songs to new audiences, musicians and generations.”
